Our school has created and opened our very own online store! With the help of Mr. Wilson, and his students in Digital Graphics and Illustration, the very first round of stickers have gone up. The class is made up of seniors, Laura Wilson and Summer Wright, and freshmen Kylee Oliver and Yaretzi Sandoval.
The first sticker is a jaguar paw print holding a football with the high school football numbers punched in them. There is also an option to get a paw print without a number. They are 5” x 5” and can be printed in black or white, and cost two dollars each. Payment is made through credit card or a Paypal account.
The online store will also include items that the Junior class is selling, and items that Cassie Daniel’s class is making. Over the next few weeks, students will post more of their stickers on the website. If you have a great design idea, feel free to go talk to Laura, Summer, Kylee or Yaretzi!

Kenzie Chisum is a long time Guthrie Family Member, but a first time Guthrie Teacher. Married to Kevin Chisum, Guthrie’s principal, they’ve been Guthrie residents for nearly a decade. Kenzie began teaching in 2002, but took 5 years off to raise her children. She’s taught at Spur, Post, and The Connections Academy, an online learning institution, and has taught 4th grade, middle school science, chemistry, biology, physics, and all levels of math from 4th grade through college algebra. Mrs. Chisum got her Bachelors education at Lubbock Christian University, and her Masters at Texas Tech University. When asked about her life in Guthrie, she said, “I can’t imagine a better place to live and raise a family. My kids get to see multiple examples of compassionate, hard-working people everyday. It’s a great community and school, and I’m happy to be a part of it.” We welcome Mrs.Chisum to our teaching staff with high hopes!

The Guthrie CSD library has started its very own book club! The club was thought of and put into place by Jaycee McCauley with the help of JoAnn Shipman and Romy Ferguson. The first book the club has started reading is Before You Meet Prince Charming by Sarah Mally. Jaycee was the one to recommend the book and said, “ The book definitely made me see dating and marriage in a different light and made me think about so many different things that have never crossed my mind. I wanted the girls in our school to also experience this awesome book.”
Mrs. Shipman says, “The book is a guide to preparing young girls for making one of the most important decisions in their lives, which is about relationships with boys, the dating scene, and future marriage partners. The book uses a study guide for the girls to use personally to review, learn and grow, and search their inner hearts. The book uses a sense of humor, Godly principles, and a fairytale allegory to ‘draw pictures’ that will hopefully help attendees better understand the principles. Illustrations, memory verses, and practical assignments will challenge students and make this a perfect book to use for small groups.”
All girls, 6th grade and above, are invited and most welcome. They meet every Wednesday at 11:30 in the little gym foyer. The goal is to read one chapter a week and to answer the questions in the study guide as well. No one will ever be singled out, asked to speak, and the study guide questions are personal and confidential. The library wants to make sure everyone has the best time and gets the most out of it as possible! In the words of Jaycee, “I'm so excited to see how far these girls are going to take this book! I can't wait to see what steps they'll take towards purity and God’s way for dating. It's amazing that our school can do things like this, and I think we will all change the way we see dating and marriage after reading this book. It will be awesome to see what God does these next few months!”
