PE & Athletics News
We are starting to receive PE uniforms that have been ordered over the summer. If you ordered your uniform by August 1st your student should have received their uniform by now. If you ordered your uniform by August 12th those orders will be delivered to the school by Friday. If you ordered clothes before the August 25th deadline then those orders will be delivered during the third week of school. The website is now closed for the fall semester and will not reopen.
We would love to see you and your family come and support our teams this year. When you come out to the game there is a $2 ticket for students and $4 tickets for adults sold at the gym or gate entrance. It is cash only. It always helps our ticket takers if you have smaller bills. Please do not bring bills larger than $20 to games. Thank you. Next week our 8th grade football team will play at Kimborough stadium. The Silver team will start at 5:30 and the blue team will start about at 7:00. The 8th grade volleyball team will play at home on Wednesday September 6th starting at 6:00 in the big gym. The 7th grade volleyball team will travel to Robinson on Thursday. We always love to have a loud and positive supportive crowd at our games.
If you drop your student off at one of the games please make sure they have a ride set to pick them up at the end of the game. STUDENTS THAT ARE NOT PICKED UP ON TIME MIGHT NOT BE ALLOWED TO COME BACK TO ANOTHER GAME.
