In August, students brought back their signed reading logs and were entered into a drawing for a Kindle Fire. During summer, 231 books were read and recorded by Parrott students. The winning ticket belonged to eighth-grader Colton Garrett.

POWELL MIDDLE: The school's choral department had its largest number of boys ever selected to participate in the Florida Male Honor Choir through the American Choral Directors Association. This year, seven boys were selected. The boys include: Sammy DeAngelis, Chris Rocanelli, Dylan Sbashnig, Jonnie Pletincks, Zachary Binder, Reagan Chapman and Tyler Austin. They will perform with the 150-voice select choir at the association's Florida convention held at Seminole State College in Lake Mary, Nov. 2 and 3.
