Football Heads to Regionals:
We are so excited for our Varsity Football team that they continue to win and are still undefeated and we would like to have as many people to support them as possible so we would like to take a spectator bus but we need enough interest to be able to run it.

I know that some of this will be an inconvenience, so I am thanking all of you ahead of time for your patience and understanding while we get the project buttoned up. See you all at Ross Field!
