Today is Monday, October 22nd and it is an A Day.

This Friday is Senior Night for the Blue Wave Football Team. To celebrate, the Student Council would like to have a whiteout! On Friday, October 26, everyone should wear white not only at the football game that evening, but at school throughout the day as well. We will have a pep rally on Friday and we can’t wait to see everyone there in their all-white clothing, accessories, and gear!
