Since the tonight's game was cancelled by Jackson Prep, the boys will practice until 4:30. This is not mandatory and they do not have to have practice clothes. Thank you.
Jackson Prep just called and they cancelled our game for tonight. There is no basketball game tonight.
Once again we will be able to make $5 for every sheet of coupons we sell during McTeacher night. These coupon sheets are a great value. You can easily recover your $5 in a visit to McDonald's! They make great stocking stuffers or even Secret Santa gifts. If you can't come Tuesday night, we will take advanced orders for the coupon sheets here at the school.
Let's be sure to keep the McTeacher's night in mind for next Tuesday 4:30 - 7:00. We have a basketball that night so stop in for a pregame meal or take a night off from cooking after the game. Last year we raised a decent amount of money with an excellent turnout. Let's try to do even better this year.
The December Calendar will be sent out early next week. All of our upcoming events are on the website.
