7th & 8th Grade Football Players: If you still have football equipment to check in, please do so before you leave for the break.

Turn your equipment into Coach Halvorsen (7th) or Murtaugh (8th) as soon as possible.

The Fall Season is upon us, which means colder temps. Which means a change in wardrobe. Reminder to read page 11 in your planner. A few reminders: Slippers and Pajama pants are for home, come to school with pride in your personal appearance and ready to learn.
