Boy Basketball Home Games

Our student section has been packed and so much fun! A few reminders - If your student attends a basketball game, they must stay on campus between the end of school and the start of the basketball game at 3:30. Students should report directly to the gym. Students should stay in the stands during the game, watch the game and cheer positively. Please review these expectations with your student.

Below are the boys basketball home games and the spirit days that we will have with each home game. We hope to have a great student section! Please remember students may use their activities pass to attend or pay $1. Students who attend must have their ride here for pick up no later than 5:30pm.
