From principal Greg Sturgill:
Happy Friday and welcome to the weekend… we are running out of days in August. Hopefully, the dog days are beyond us soon. We were inside more than usual! We love getting outside as much as possible, but safety first! Thanks to all who joined us this week either at the ballpark or Back to School Night. It is great to partner in the education of these wonderful young people. Have a wonderful weekend, and God’s peace.
