Today is Monday, September 25

Celebrate Freedom Week

The Florida Legislature has declared the last week of September to be Celebrate Freedom Week. Students all around the state will be learning about the important documents upon which our nation was founded.  One of these documents, the Declaration of Independence, begins with these memorable words:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

Thank you!

Thank you to our amazing band and student section who brought the Blue Wave spirit to our first home football game. Thanks for supporting your team, your classmates, and your school. Special high fives to Willy the Wave!
