Wanted to take just a few minutes and update you on some things:
First, our cafeterias served more than 4,000 more lunches in September 2015 compared with September 2014. The cafeterias also served more than 2,400 more breakfast in September 2015 compared with September 2014. This is a tremendous increase and I congratulate our cafeteria workers on being able to keep up with the increase in meals.
Our cross country teams absolutely dominated at Lindale, yesterday. The varsity boys won the 5A/6A division and were led by Ericson Goodjohnson who finished 3rd overall. The varsity girls won the 3A/4A division and were led by Chanda Westbrook who placed 1st overall and Skye Burns who placed 3rd overall. Both the JV boys and girls placed first in the open JV division. Congratulations to all the runners and the coaches on this great performance.
