February 22 - 27, 2016 - Serve, Lead & Inspire

Hello Lopez Families,

I hope everyone is enjoying the great weather we have had. I went to see our boys and girls tennis teams during the week and wow! We are truly dominating the competition. It was nice to get outside and watch our kids excel.

I am getting excited about The Great Amazing Race. I am bringing my 7th grade son as my team member so it will be nice to have a little father-son bonding while supporting a great cause. If you have not signed up yet, please do so below.
