Hello Bobcat families!

Our Lady Cats played with great heart and teamwork Friday night; yet the game ended with Carthage acquiring the most points. We are SO PROUD of these ladies and their accomplishments this year. We are also proud of our students and the positive support they have provided throughout the year. Congratulations on an outstanding season!

We also send congratulations to our Bobcat Football team for winning the Bi-District Championship on Thursday night. They will play against Sweetwater on Friday at Tarleton State University in Stephenville. Kick-off is at 7:00 pm. Pre-sale tickets will go on sale on Monday ($7.00 adults and $3.00 students; $8.00 at the gate). Krum is the visiting team. They will only accept THSCA, Senior Citizen, and District passes. Coach Robinson has learned that this is the Dairy Queen Game of the Week. You are invited to join us for a send off at 1:30 down Bobcat Boulevard.

Attached to this email is a brief glimpse of KHS happenings for next week. It’s an exciting week for many of our students. Good luck to FFA members competing at the District Leadership Development Events. Good luck to our basketball teams as they play this next week. Good luck to our band members competing at Regional Jazz Concert and Clinic. Finally Good Luck to Choir at the All-District Choir Concert. Please note that we have Junior Class pie deliveries on Wednesday, so students will need to plan for deliveries.

If the Financial Aid Officer tells you to re-test (to improve your scores for more scholarship money), retest at that time.

        Community College: Open admission, meaning that you may enter if you test. You may

        submit a college entrance exam (ACT/SAT), or TSI (locally administered entrance exam). Every community college is different. Contact admissions or look on-line for
