    Workers install a marble facade on Tate Elementary School’s addition Monday. The marble was mined very near the site where the  original stone for the historic school originated to ensure a close match using maps kept by the Ga. Marble Company.

At last week’s meeting, school board members requested a committee be formed to look at all aspects of the athletics program – and they want it done fast.
    Board member Delane Lewis read a statement following a long executive session instructing Superintendent Lula Mae Perry, “Establish a committee to study effective leadership of athletics at our middle schools and high school and specific recommendations for change with a timeline of three weeks.”
See more about the athletics study and progress at the Tate Elementary campus in this week's print or online editions.
