  1. Our first after school dance will be in the gym on Friday, September 11,  after school until 5:30pm.  Dress is school casual.  Cost is $3 per person.  While there are some “couples” who attend together, most students just dance in large groups.  It’s a fun time for students to be together outside the school day.
  1. Congratulations to the 7th grade volleyball team for winning the Hancock County tournament!
