Hello Parents,

As we near the last few days for our 8th graders, we (Faculty/Staff) would like to sing a special Tribute Song to them. There will be a special morning assembly on Thursday, May 25th in the gym. This will take place after our morning announcements. We hope you are all able to join us, as we gather together for one final time before graduation.

Thank You, Coach Ferrales
