Middle School Sports Update
I would like to highlight a few of our track and field players this week. Congratulations to 8th grader Deshawn Taylor who came in first in both the 100 and 200 meters. Our 7th grade boys also did great in the 100 meters. Christian Tanner led the 7th grade with 2nd place, Mitchel Julian came in 4th, Brodie Menzies came in 5th, and Andrew Voight came in 8th. 7th grader Oliva Haller came in 4th in the 200 meters. In 6th grade for 100 meters, Iizabelle Isidio came in 8th and Justin Bravo came in 9th. In the long jump Christian Tanner came in first and Deshawn Taylor came in 2nd. Congratulations to all of our Track and Field Team. See here for the complete list of events results.
Our Basketball Team will be playing this Saturday at Lincoln High School. They will play Clark Middle School at 1:00 and Wilson Middle at 2:00. I Hope to see Farb Fans in the stands.
The Snack Bar will open this week. The snack bar is run by the district and currently they will be selling bottled water for $1 and chocolate chip cookies for $1.50. I am hoping they will add more items throughout the year. Students do need cash to purchase these items.
Prime Time is our Free before and after school care program. There are a few spots left if you are interested. Please see the link here to register.
Thank you for your continued support. Please reach out anytime with questions or concerns.
Have a wonderful evening.
Please see information about tryouts this week. This letter was sent to families who have signed up, last Friday.

Message from our Counselors
Welcome to a new school year parents and guardians! As School Counselors, we want to make sure that you know we are here to support your child. The Counseling Corner will help us give you updates so that you can stay informed and have some resources to help support your child this year. We are still getting things set up for the year, so check back in the coming weeks for more information.
In the next couple weeks we will be setting up a Counseling google classroom for this year. Students can use our google classroom to reach out to us and we will be posting other resources there throughout the year. There will also be a google form on our google classroom that students can fill out to request to talk to a School Counselor.
We hope everyone has a great first week! We are all learning and growing together during this season of life as it has its many ups and downs, but we will be here to support students and families along the way.
Please reach out to us or have your child reach out to us.
