Red Ribbon Week

8th grade boys tryouts will start on Tuesday, October 27 at 5:30 instead of Monday.
Today is a special day in Scribner history. 60 years ago today, Scribner was dedicated as a new junior high school in New Albany Floyd County. The 7th graders have been learning about the history of Scribner as we celebrate the 60th anniversary-that’s also known as the DIAMOND ANNIVERSARY. The DIAMOND ANNIVERSARY MARKS 60 years!
Although Scribner opened in September 1960, the dedication ceremony took place on today’s date October 23, 1960–60 years ago. . Dr. Glen Barkes was the superintendent at the time and led the ceremony. There was a prayer given by Rev. William Korhewa from St. Mark’s. The band placed, the choir sang. There was an open house afterward hosted by Scribner’s first principal: Mr. Harlan Betts. He was the principal for only one year.
In addition, Scribner housed all of the students from the county for a few years until Floyd Central Junior High and High School was built. There were over 1200 students the first year Scribner opened. As a treat this year, 7th graders have seen pictures of what SMS used to look like. If your class would like to see some pictures, please send Mrs. Samsel an email.
We are proud of the Scribner history and heritage within our community. You are a member of the Scribner family. Wear your red and black school colors proudly.
