We have been off the air for a few days, but wow what a few days we have had. First, what a great week. From everyone that dressed up, decorated doors, and just showed school spirit throughout the week, you made the week so special. Thanks to the teachers, administration, and support staff that saw the importance of the total high school experience. What a great, great homecoming week.  It's one to be remembered.  Keep working to make your positive mark on the world and taking your place in the HALL OF FAME.

Keeping that service spirit alive last week were the Tadpoles and The Key Club.  The Key Club and Tadpoles volunteered in record numbers to assist The First Methodist Church unload their pumpkins for their pumpkin patch. Check out this video of their work.
