Groundhog Day happy holiday for Vidor teacher

Sally Andrews
Coordinator of Community Relations

It’s not often that you get to cross something really cool and crazy off your ‘life list,’ but VHS teacher Leslie Sparks did just that as she was named the Groundhog Ambassador of the Year and got to meet THE groundhog. With VHS teacher Land friend Susan Robinson, Sparks flew to Pittsburg last Thursday and drove to Punxsutawney for the festivities. Thursday evening the pair attended the Groundhog Club reception, met members of the Inner Circle and Phil ( the groundhog who either sees his shadow or doesn’t, predicting whether or not winter is nearly over ).

LCJH Brings Home Solo Medals

On Saturday, January 27, twenty-one Little Cypress Junior High Varsity choir members attended the annual UIL Solo and Ensemble contest. Each child prepares, memorizes and then performs a solo for a judge who gives them a rating of one to five, with one being superior. According to choir director, Stephanie Teague, “Considering they only had seven class periods to learn their song and only four practices with their accompanist, I am beyond thrilled to announce the following results. I am so proud of the efforts these students put into this contest and am excited to continue this musical journey with them.” These students earned superior ratings.
