I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend!
Congratulations to the football team, the Mighty Bulldog Marching Band, and our varsity cheerleaders for three great performances Friday night. The Bulldogs went 2-0 on the year with a 62-0 win over Quitman! The Bulldogs will host Palmer this Friday at 7:30.
I have not received overall results on the cross country meets from Saturday. I do know that Chanda Westbrook finished 5th overall in Open Varsity Girls division.
I want to remind everyone to sign up for our new text messaging system. While Celly served us well, changes in the company’s priorities made it less user friendly. Our new service, Skylert, makes signing up to receive texts easy: just text “Y” or “Yes” to 67587 to continue to receive text messages from the district and the campuses. I also encourage everyone to update their information in Family Access if phone numbers or email addresses have changed. Skylert will also allow messages to be communicated by phone or email.
