The volleyball team played an awesome game against Saginaw last Friday. The ladies took a tough lost to Saginaw in game 5. We came up short but we are very proud of how hard the ladies competed and how well the coaches had them prepared. Our athletes from multiple sports showed up and supported the team with such enthusiasm! A big shout out to our athletes and fans! Ayyy Heights!

Thank you for the extra tutoring, the patience, the understanding, the mentoring, the teaching and reteaching, the inputting of grades, the endless hour of lesson planning, and your love for my runners to be successful in your classroom. As previously mentions, we are going to regionals and the boys have worked hard as well. Please congratulate them to show them your support."

I am so proud of our 7th grade cross country scholar athletes for their determination to "Be better than Yesterday"! Three of four ladies earned medals for finishing in the top ten, and our one gentleman earned a medal for finishing 1st among 8th graders. Most importantly, their running times reflected their growth, discipline, and their dedication to be "better" than when they began.
