John Tyler football team loses to the Longview Lobos

This heated football rivalry between Longview and our Tyler Lions took place at rose stadium at 7:00pm on Thursday. Both teams had a rocky start in the first quarter but Longview caught fire late in the second putting up two touchdowns moving them ahead of our Lions. Our John Tyler Lions kept fighting throughout each quarter but unfortunately fell short to the Longview lobos 49-7. Although the game did not go as planned we will not lose hope in our team.

The man with a plan : Brady Beddingfeild

John Tyler High construction progress

According to the man over the John Tyler construction project, Brady Beddingeild, it will be finished sooner than you think. John Tyler should be finished by August of 2020. The 2019-2020 students of John Tyler will be moving into the new building in January of 2020 (no more portables). The only concerns is when students wander into the construction sites, which is highly dangerous and can cause stress for construction workers. This means that our students need to act more responsibly, and pay attention to their surroundings.

The person over the future glorious John Tyler is Brady Beddingfeild who has had a good amount of experience in construction. From schools to railroads, Brady has done enough to show that both John Tyler and Lee are in good hands. What is even more exciting, is that were able to see the live construction in action. All you have to do, is type up http://www.wrl/ LIVE and you´ll get a close up view of that work in progress, the beginning of a masterpiece.

Montreal Sanders has many great things to say about the 2018-2019 John Tyler Drum line

      Montreal Sanders says the kids have great potential, and a slight lack of accountability but, they’re wonderful kids.  He also said the greatest aspect of his job is the kids that actually do their homework making my job easier.
     Compared to last years drum line, the drum line stayed pretty consistent, but the talent has elevated.  His favorite thing about being drum tech is being with my kids (drum line) & watching them grow as musicians not just drummers.
      Also, his thoughts about this years halftime show was very surprising. “Oh God!  This year’s show tells a story. It has so much dynamic contrast & it captures your attention from start to finish.
      There’s so much depth to see into what’s being played & performed.”  According to his answers, he is loving this years drum line.

Teen drinking

You probably know some teens who drink. Maybe you’ve even tried it yourself. The truth is not everyone does it. The latest research shows 2 out of 3 teens don’t drink.

Not everyone drinks it’s something that can be use to take the pain away or some people just want to be like the other kids and drink too.  If that’s the case then your following other people’s footsteps. Teen drinking is a bigger deal then you actually think.

The law says its illegal to drink under 21, so why do we as “teens” still do it? Together as friends, families or whatever relationship you have with the other we need to make a pact.

We let the best of us get to our heads and we care more about protecting our friends than ourselves. But it doesn’t have to be like that you can take a stand just like the rest of us. You’re not alone!
