Daily Announcements


January 15, 2019


SGA will be hosting a dodgeball tournament on Saturday, January 19 from 9-2 in the main gym.  The event is organized as a fundraiser to earn money that we hope to then put back into improvements throughout the building.  Students are going to sign up, but we thought it could also be fun to have some teachers/staff/secretaries/administrators represented.  If you are willing to have a little fun, and give up an hour of your time on a Saturday to play, we’d love to see faculty and staff teams represented.  Information in the front office or room 204
