October's Happenings

October has continued to be a busy month.  We have begun the Jr. High Basketball season with both our boys and girls teams.  Class favorites for each class were selected throughout the elementary and high school.  Our Seniors have been applying to colleges and will be selecting Who's Who among their classmates.  Our newly organized bass team has received their official team jerseys and two team members placed in the standings for the first time.  Our Volleyball Team has made it to the State Finals and our Football Team  will compete in Round One of the Play-offs.  The annual fruit sale by the FFA has begun.  We also welcomed back on campus some of our remote learners. As we end up the month and look toward November, we hope it will be "mask-less' and Covid free.
