    Attention 7th and 8th grade girls interested in playing tennis, make sure all your paperwork is on file in the office with Mrs. Rhoton.  Tryouts start Monday right after school.  Please see Mrs. Woodall Routledge in the band room if you have questions.

    Yearbook pictures will be taken Thursday morning, August 24, for those students who didn’t get their picture taken during the Countdown.  Since there are only about 20 students in each grade still needing pictures, we’ll call students down by grade level. Staff, please plan on having your picture taken that day, also.  Barry Frank will be set up on the stage by 7:15 that morning and the more of our staff that get their picture taken before school that morning, the better.  If you can’t get in before school, be sure to get to the camera sometime that morning!

    If you are a 7th or 8th grader interested in cheerleading, please listen closely. Tryout clinics will take place next Tuesday, August 22nd and Thursday, August 24th from 3:30-4:30. Sign up and find more information outside of Coach Dillon's room 607. If you are a returner, don't forget that we will be meeting after school on Monday, August 21st in Coach Dillon's room. Go Bulldogs!
