Are you starting to feel the love, Eagles? Okay! Okay! Just don’t force it!
ATTENTION, ALL EAGLES! This Wednesday, 2/8, is a LATE START day, and too many Eagles are waiting until the last minute to get here, wreaking havoc in our beloved parking lot. Please AVOID THE RUSH by leaving home a little earlier, so that you’re calm, cool, collected, and on campus by 9:30, ready for classes to start at 9:40. THANK YOU!
Cancer Awareness Night is this Tuesday, 2/7, during the Girls Soccer games – JV at 4 PM and Varsity at 6 PM, HERE! We’re also celebrating our Senior players! There’s going to be a snack bar and a basket raffle – all proceeds will be donated to the Cancer Fund! Come, give and enjoy some great soccer!
Did someone say pizza AND dodgeball?! OH YEAH!
