Student Parking Lot and Pick-up/Drop-off
It is imperative that we follow the traffic patterns and utilize the front circle drive for all student drop-off and pick-up.
Please do not drop off or pick up your students in the parking lot. This creates an unsafe environment.
Thank you for your committment to our Tigers' safety!
Boys Basketball Recap
Your Varsity team came up short in the Area round of the playoffs last night to end our season with a 17-5 record and a District and Bi-District Championship. We want to thank everyone who came out last night and all season to support. This season we all faced obstacles which we hope we never have to face again, and the coaches want to thank the players and all of you for helping us get through.

Softball Leads off with a Win!
The Lady Tigers opened up their season and district play last night as they hosted Austin High School. Both the JV and Varsity came away with big wins to start 1-0 in district. The Jv team won by a final score of 15-0. Earning the win in the circle was Rachel R. and adding a big hit to end the game was Larkin M.
In the varsity game, Rachel Y. pitched a shutout allowing only 1 hit and fanning 12 girls. The lady Tigers collected 9 hits offensively. Leading the charge was Maddie M. who went 3-4 with a double and 4 RBI's. Ashley R. added an RBI of her own in the first inning to score Ariel K. Emily C. also had an RBI single in the sixth to help secure the 9-0 victory. Kennedy C. and Ariel K. added two hits a piece while Layrn G. added a single to total the 9 hits for the lady Tigers.
There is a group of students reading Legacy vs. Likes by Mike Smith with Jostens Renaissance.
From the book jacket:
Legacy vs. Likes asks tough questions. If you answer honestly, it will help you determine the kind of legacy you want to leave. So you can stop wishing and talking. And start doing.
These students are engaging in great discussion and will follow up the book study by reaching out to other Tigers who want to participate in the next book study.
