    • Dear Dr. Cobb, I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how much you are truly appreciated by the staff and students here at MMS. For one thing, you give up your valuable time to share the world of Shakespeare with our students. As a professor at MSU, I know that you have a hectic schedule, but you’re willing to make your day even more hectic by teaching extra classes here at MMS. Beyond the usual grading and teaching on campus, you dedicate time and energy to making Shakespeare accessible to a younger audience. Another reason you deserve some gratitude is the passion that you have for not only teaching, but for Shakespeare as well. Your love of the language, humor and drama of Shakespeare is addicting. Behind the sometimes confusing rhetoric, lies stories that even the youngest of students can relate to. All in all, your passion for teaching and your willingness to sacrifice your own time to teach “Everyman” and not just your MSU students is very much appreciated! Sincerely, Mrs. Foster 7th Grade Teacher, MMS

    • Dear Paul, Today, I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how much you are truly missed and appreciated by the community of Murray. For one thing, you were one of the best announcers for Racer basketball and football. As you know, I came to MSU in 1988, and until this year, you were the ONLY voice I recognized at the ballgames. You truly were an iconic “voice” that was loved by players, coaches, fans, and, yes, even the Racer Band (Hi Paul!). I didn’t realize how grateful I was for your “voice” until that voice was replaced; however, no one can ever or will ever replace you. None of the game announcements have the same energy and excitement that you brought to each sport. My favorite announcement over all the years had to be the “one minute” warning and I can honestly say that NOBODY does it better than you! All in all, your passion for Racer athletics and the excitement that your voice brought to each and every event is irreplaceable! In my heart, you will always remain the one and ONLY “Voice of the Racers.” Sincerely, Hope Foster

On the court During the game Among his teammates Against the rivals To a win

    • Journal Entry #55 Journal Entry December 9, 2013 #1 Jack Frost Notes Many movies are written with a message in mind—the audience leaves the film having learned a valuable lesson/there is a moral to the story. In order to achieve this message or theme, many movies will use some of the literary devices we have studied in our poetry unit (irony, metaphor, personification, paradox, symbol, etc.), so what you “literally” see in the movie has a “figurative” meaning as well. (1) Name two literary elements used in the movie “Jack Frost.” (2) Tell how each of these elements helped to support the message/lesson/theme of the movie.
    • Journal Entry #56 Journal Entry #1 December 17, 2013 Pattern #1: Theme Write out an INDEPENDENT CLAUSE (complete sentence) to explain how EACH of the following themes “plays out” in the movie Jack Frost.  The importance of second chances Ex.
