Christmas has been a favorite holiday of mine since I was a young boy. Of course, I was lucky to grow up in a toy factory where my father, Talley Nichols, manufactured toy cap guns. As you gather with friends and family during this Christmas season, I wish you a very Merry Christmas from my family to yours.
Here are five things happening around your state this month:
The Bullard High School Twirlers continue to represent the school and the Bullard Panther Band program well, as all 10 members of the organization qualified to advance to the upcoming UIL State Twirling Contest after competing in the UIL Regional Twirling Contest Wednesday, Oct. 26, at Chapel Hill High School.
Students at Bullard High School recently learned a valuable lesson when it comes to driving safely on East Texas roads and highways – driving while distracted can result in injury or death.
Bullard middle School is preparing to host one of the largest Christmas0themed events of the season, as the school will open its doors for the BMS Mistletoe at the Middle School event, scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 8.
“We are expecting the BMS Mistletoe at the Middle School event to be a great event for our school, as well as our community,” said Cheryl Hendrix, BMS principal. “I believe this event will bring the school, our parents, and the community together on a different level; instead of us being a school that is disconnected from parents and the community at times, this event will allow us to build relationships with the parents outside of the typical parent/teacher conferences, and it’s all done in the spirit of Christmas.”
The Bullard Future Farmers of America student organization continues to experience a new level of success this school year, as the organization has performed well at several recently-held Leadership Development Events (LDE) competitions.
