After a confusing past few weeks, the football team made the playoffs as the #3 seed. Congrats to Coach Fleetwood and our football team!

Pictures / Veteran's Day Parade
We have many reasons to do group photos with our marching band in full uniform. In addition to doing this yearly, we also need a group photo for the London New Year's Day Parade to use and for the Wind Ensemble to use in their program for their AMEA performance on Friday, January 20th in Birmingham. Now that we have these uniforms, we are beginning to make plans for this.
We are looking at doing these in Big Spring Park the morning of the Veteran's Day Parade on Friday, November 11 (no school this day). This is the most convenient time we can find to do this! A schedule is coming, but plan on pictures around 8:30 am that morning with parade line up around 10:00 am.
