JV Boys Basketball:
The team started their season off last night in Auburn vs Central Kings as part of the West Kings Invitational tournament. The guys came out a little rusty and nervous spotting the Gators a 24 point lead at one point early on. However, the guys roared back in the 3rd and 4th quarters coming within a possession of sending the game to overtime before losing 74-70 with the crowd going wild.
Awesome grit and no quit from the guys!
Next up, the guys are playing rival NKEC tonight at 5:30 pm at Pine Ridge Middle School as the tournament continues.

Clubs and Activities:
The Brain Wars Club is hosting a mini competition in the cafeteria at lunchtime on the 19th and 20th, which is next Wednesday and Thursday. Teams of four people will participate in a short task cycle. The cycle consists of four three minute short tasks that are based on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math). (This is not an IQ test nor a school assignment. LOL) The winning team will receive $40.00 to spend at Griffy’s Grill! If you are interested, the signup sheet is posted on Mrs. Webb’s classroom door (Room 2811). There is a four team limit per day, so please sign your team up on or before Tuesday December 18th. If you have any questions/concerns, please feel free to email us at email@example.com.
Students who wish to travel on a different bus at the end of the day are reminded that they MUST get a bus note from the office. Take your signed note from home to the office before school starts, at recess or at lunch, and get a bus note to give to the bus driver.
