Hello Spring!

We have so much going on in Mako Nation this spring! High School Musical rehearsals are in full swing, baseball, softball, track, tennis, soccer and golf are all starting up ~ and we will have our first ACT test on March 9th for our Junior class. WHEW! I am tired just thinking of it all!
