Concession Stand Special

We will be running a “What’s Poppin’?” Special in the concession stand for any and all spectators that attend any of the games. What’s the “What’s Poppin?” Special? I am glad that you asked. For each purchase of a candy item (M&Ms [plain or peanut], Ring Pop, Skittles [regular], Kit-Kat, Snickers) from the concession stand, you will receive one free bag of popcorn. *Offer is good for any and all spectators; 1 candy item purchased = 1 free bag of popcorn.* Remember staff members get free admission to the game with your ECA pass and students get free admission to the game by wearing Blue and Gold. 

Winter Athletic Portraits

Your student-athlete(s) and parents have three ways to order portraits!  

Pre-ordering online at www.lifetouchsports.com – This is open 48 hours after portrait day! Here is the direct online order link:

Student-Athlete of the Week

Jayln Smith is the student-athlete of the week. Coach Pangburn states Jayln Smith is the prime example of student-athlete and leader.  She has continued to grow and led the 7th-grade basketball team. You will find her going hard after rebounds, setting screens, and talking on defense. She never stops working hard, is always positive, and excels in the classroom as a student. Jayln is always helping others whether on the court or just making everyone around her laugh and smile off the court.   She is a great example for all student-athletes of how to be a leader both on and off the court. Solid work, Jayln!
