Parents - with the changing of our weather, and the cooler temps they are now predicting, please make sure your students are coming to school prepared to go outside at recess. Please make sure you are sending along coats, hats, gloves, etc. so students can be warm when outdoors. If a student is not dressed properly for the conditions, staff may keep them inside for safety purposes. Mr. Hawkins

There will be a mandatory meeting for all players and parents on Sunday, November 5th for GIRLS grades 7-12 who plan on playing basketball this year. The players will meet at 4:00 pm and the parents will meet at 4:30 in separate gyms at the school. Please note if you are in 7th or 8th grade and do not want to practice with the JVs or Varsity, you do NOT have to attend and neither do your parents. This will not affect your playing on the 7th and 8th grade team. I would greatly appreciate if both parents could attend the meeting if possible. If you have any questions, please text Coach Young @ 605-999-6826. Thank you.
