Athletics Announcements!

If you plan to play a fall sport (Football, Volleyball, Soccer, Cross Country or Cheerleader), make sure you have all of your required forms submitted before you participate in conditioning. Current physicals must be submitted to your Coach prior to participation. Sign- up sheets are in the cafeteria. Forms are in the office and on the school athletic web page.
