Play-off game #1 and SMBF
This past weekend was a simply fantastic. The weather, the performances, the behavior, everyone did a fantastic job. We are very lucky to have such great students and boosters that make days like Saturday possible. Thank you's aren't nearly enough but I'm eternally grateful and thankful for the efforts of our parents and boosters!

This will be our last performance of the halftime show at football games. If we win and have a second home game we will get into doing show band activities.
The band will wear their hats and purple pants with gloves on Friday. (don't forget black socks)

As weather gets colder it is imperative that parents are communicating with their children at the end of games and contests to be picked up. I will not allow my staff or myself to stay inside the building with single individuals, nor will we put them in our vehicles to transport them home for you. You may notice that when kids are left behind I ask them to exit the building and wait on the hill for pick-up. I will watch over them from a distance in my enclosed car. This is fine in the early fall when it is warm, but as temps drop parents need to be more concerned with picking-up in a timely fashion.
