Shirt Orders
Due Aug. 26

Dr. Seuss will be on the loose when Week 2 of the new 2014-15 school year features Homecoming 2014.  Be sure to make room for all those "places you'll go!" and the "fun to be done!".  Don't forget there will be a "game to be won" on Friday, Sept. 5, vs. Melissa at Wildcat Stadium.  The deadline to order your official Homecoming shirt is Tuesday, Aug. 26, so be like the grinch and discover that Homecoming means "a little bit more."

Back to Work for Volleyball, Football, Band

Summer is winding down, but the sizzling August days won't detour students in volleyball, football, band, and other groups associated with Friday night high school fever.  Pre-season practices have already begun for those groups, including:

  • Band which started on July 28 with Percussion Camp.  Freshmen reported on July 30, and the full entourage was back by Aug. 1.
  • Volleyball which has started the 2014 season.  Check out the Lady Cats on Tuesday, Sept. 2, as they host Sulphur Springs in the Wildcat Gym for freshmen, JV, and varsity matches.
  • Football which started pre-season drills on Monday, Aug. 4.   The first week of classes will culminate in the first games of the season.

Welcome, Class of 2018
