Special Note: With six weeks remaining in the 2022-2023 school year, the scholastic sports season begins to wind down. It is important to express appreciation to the principals, coaches, and district leaders who have provided invaluable support for the various scholastic sports. It is also important to thank our scholar-athletes and their families for their participation and attendance during this past year. Without this kind of support, it would be impossible to provide a meaningful learning experience designed to Build a Better Tomorrow, Today!
