This Week

Congratulations to the High School volleyball teams on their sweep against Frankston. The varsity won a hard-fought contest 3-2 last Friday, and the JV won 2-0. The win puts the varsity at 3-2 in district. I want to give a special shout out to our JV volleyball team for their support of the varsity during the varsity’s game against Frankston. They certainly made a difference in the outcome!

Congratulations to the varsity football team on their 27-20 victory over Mildred last Friday. The Bulldogs improved their record to 3-2 overall. This was the final pre-district game this year. The Bulldogs have an off week this week before they start district play on October 10 at Elkhart.

I also want to recognize the Mighty Bulldog Marching Band and the cheerleaders for their great performances at the game on Friday. The Bulldog Band has got almost all of their halftime show installed. The band will start competing at marching contests this Saturday when they travel to Mesquite for the Mesquite Marching Festival.

Volleyball Update and Parent Access

All three of the High School volleyball teams recorded wins over West Rusk this past Tuesday. The 9th grade won 2-0. The JV also won 2-0. The varsity evened their district record at 2-2 with a 3-0 win against West Rusk. The Lady Bulldogs have a big district game this Friday against Frankston. The varsity game will start at 4:30.

Although it seems impossible, we are nearing the end of the 1st 6 weeks. I want to take this opportunity to encourage all parents to sign up for Parent Access with our Skyward Student Accounting software. With a Parent Access account, parents can monitor attendance and grades throughout the year. Parents can sign up for weekly summaries of grades for their children. In addition, Parent Access will also allow parents to monitor their children’s discipline history, schedule, and food service account. For more information about Parent Access, please contact the campuses.
