The Regents 9th and 10th grade classes traveled to Austin on February 15-16, 2017, to attend Nacogdoches-SFA Days at the Texas State Legislature. The students met State Senator Robert Nichols and State Representative Travis Clardy. The group also toured the capitol and visited two museums. This trip has become a tradition for Regents students, who study Government in the 10th grade and then are able to see government in action at a state level. We are so proud of our students, who represented their families and their school so excellently.
The students are pictured below with their Government teacher David Henry, Regents parent and board Vice-Chairman David Alders, and State Rep. Travis Clardy. Appearing in the second picture below are Lance Vermillion and Kilyn James.
Regents Academy Latin teacher Lara Sowell recently visited Washington, D.C., in service to the National Federation of the Blind. While there she visited the office of our U.S. Representative and friend, the Hon. Louie Gohmert. If you look closely, you can see a Regents pennant on the wall.
Thank you for your service, Mrs. Sowell!

Congratulations to the Regents Junior High Girls Basketball team, who competed in the CSAC basketball tournament yesterday in Longview. The team won two of three games to win third place in the tournament.
The team competed with intensity and Christian character, and we are so proud of these ladies!
Congratulations to our high school music students who auditioned at the TAPPS regional contest yesterday.
ALL of our students earned either a 1 (superior) or a 2 (excellent) rating!
And we have 8 soloists advancing to state in March. We are very proud of all of them!
And we are very thankful for our own Miss Emily Alders for accompanying three of our students.
We were so happy to welcome the Seed Survivor mobile classroom to campus on January 9. The mobile classroom was sponsored by Texas Farm Bureau and Agrium Inc. Kindergarten through 5th graders visited the exhibit and learned about the foods they love to eat and the plants that make them possible. They also learned about the science behind growing healthy plants. Students even planted sunflower seeds in a cup of soil to take home.
Students and teachers really enjoyed the exhibit, despite the cold, rainy weather.
This Christmas season Regents partnered with Azleway Children’s Services once again to provide toys and Christmas gifts for foster children.
Regents families and two business supporters donated $837, with which Regents parent Holly Middlebrook and Regents secretary Debbie Moore were able to buy everything on the Christmas list for 12 children.
Thank you, Regents school family, for your wonderful generosity. It makes me glad to think of these children seeing these presents under the tree with their names on them. Thanks also to Liana Berry for allowing Regents to work together with Azleway.
Nine Regents freshman collected the gifts and delivered them to Azleway, and then the students were given a tour of the Azleway facility by their wonderful staff.
