Welcome fall and the cooler weather! What a perfect time for this to come along as we prepare for Homecoming next week. God is good and provides all that we need. We are excited about the upcoming week full of activities for our students and our school community. I invite you to come out and enjoy our Homecoming football game on Saturday, October 30th, at 12:00 p.m. as we take on All Saints. I hope to see you all there. God bless. ~ M. Schick, Interim Principal
