Donald Trump will be the 45th President!

Donald J. Trump won the presidency last night after a tough 18 months of his political campaign. He won 276 electoral votes to seal the spot in the White House. It was also a tough loss last night for Hillary Clinton. Secretary Clinton ran a strong campaign for the Democratic Party. No matter which candidate you preferred, it's important to move forward as one country ... We are the UNITED STATES of AMERICA.


Congratulations to Flower Mound High School, 2016 Bands of America San Antonio Super Regional Champions! FMHS also picked up awards for Outstanding Music, Outstanding General Effect, and Outstanding Visual. This is the first time since 2007 for a band to sweep captions and the first time in six years for a champion to repeat.

The band will perform today in the All State competition in San Antonio. FloMo finished first in prelims and will perform today at 11:30 in the finals. Also... out of all the 6A bands that competed yesterday, LISD held the top three spots. Hebron was 2nd and Marcus was 3rd. Awesome night for Flower Mound and LISD!

Marine Corps Day/Veterans Day

Two important US Holidays are coming up soon. Tomorrow on November 10th we celebrate Marine Corps Birthday. This form of military turns 241 years of age! The United States Marine Corps, formerly known as the Continental Marines, is responsible for providing protection from the sea using mobility of the combined arms task forces. It was started by Samuel Nicholas who started it on November 10th, 1775 and to this day they continue to protect the United States. Remember to thank a Marine for their service tomorrow.

This Friday is Veterans Day. This is the day where we celebrate millions of veterans for their service. Make sure to not get this confused with Memorial Day because this is a day to honor service while Memorial Day honors the men and women who have died for their country. Veterans Day marks the anniversary of World War 1 which lasted 4 years from August 1st, 1914 to November 11th, 1918. If you have any family members who have served in the military make sure to thank them for all they have done for our country.

This week is a time of appreciation and independence for the United States of ‘Merica. Let's give thanks to all the men and women who served for our country and pray for the soldiers fighting for their country to keep us safe.

God bless the USA ... Written by: Joseph S. and Tre M.
