8th Grade night and Homecoming was a great success! Thank you to all that participated and helped with pit equipment.
It's Rivalry week and we are traveling to North High School. It's always an exciting football game and one of the best High School football game atmospheres around, though it's always a better when the game is played in the Ditch!
Information regarding the game can be found in this graphic from the district office.
Student safety is a huge concern for this event. Field passes are limited to alleviate the strain put on the law enforcement officers. As of Tuesday morning I'm not aware of how many field passes I will receive.
Please plan to arrive early to support the Marching Tigers and North Pride in a special combined pregame. It's fun to play up the rivalry of the football programs but both bands are very supportive of each other and we try to take every opportunity to combine as a symbol of community support. See the timeline pregame details.
