LOOKING TO UP YOUR GAME?
Join the advanced PE "Sport Fitness" class 4th hour for second semester! This is an athlete-only training course. Lion training is intended to increase strength, speed, endurance, and range of motion, all while decreasing risk of injury. Athletes will see how proper training can translate into better performance both on and off the field. Stop into the athletic office and see Mrs. Gracik for a permission form (this form must be signed by your coach and Ms. Melvin).
Please remember - Friday is the only day of the week that hats may be worn. You must have purchased a wrist band to wear a hat.
We will be selling black hat bands for the rest of the semester for $3.00 to wear a hat on Friday.
We will be selling Santa Hats on Friday and Monday for Santa Hat Day on Monday. They will cost $2.00. First come, first served.
Any junior or senior interested in traveling to Belize in the summer of 2018, please see Ms. Bowman to get information about the trip.
Everyone is invited - Every Thursday, 7:00 a.m. in Mrs. Eaton's room. See You There!
