In the Booster Club meeting that was held last night, it was decided to have intramural ball games again this year. The annual Fish Fry was also discussed. Please let Anita Nordrum know if you are able to help at the fish fry or at the intramural games. There are lots of things we need volunteers for. You can let her know what you can do and what times you are available. Thank you for all your support! It is going to be a great year!
Please make plans to attend the booster club meeting tonight at 6:00 in the high school cafeteria. The business topics are Fish Fry and Intramurals.
Area law enforcement have been made aware of the message on social media regarding an act of violence being directed at Arkansas schools. Please be assured that we will work closely with all law enforcement in order to protect students, faculty and staff. Although at this time it has not been verified as a credible threat, we have given it serious consideration.
