Football Shouldn’t Trump Education — Call Today

Parents for Participation: I’d like to urge you to call or email Carl Martin’s office today with the following suggested message:

“Superintendent Martin, While many in Athens are excited for the AHS football game, for other students and parents, football is simply not a priority. We urge you to find a way to make up the four hours that will be lost this week. There are many families in Athens for whom football has very little meaning — but luckily, education does. Please don’t send this message that football trumps class time to every family in Athens —  make up the hours or reconsider your decision.”

The number is 740.797.4544, email is

Many thanks,
Annie Howell
