Attention all 7th grade boys' and girls' who are planning on playing soccer in the fall. Registration forms are located in the Main office at Mrs. Corns desk.

Also to any 7th grader wanting to play soccer this fall, we will be doing early conditioning starting May 6th and ending May 24th. Workouts will be every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 4-5:30 pm at the BC practice fields. (If riding the activity bus, you will be released in time for you to make the bus). This is completely voluntary, but highly recommended so that we can all be ready for this fall. There is no charge for this additional conditioning, and if we have a good turn out we will be doing a second round in June!

If you have any questions please contact Mr. Warf.


Word of the day: industrious (adj) Characterized by diligence; steady; persevering.


Unlike the grasshopper, Aesop's famous ant was most industrious; she worked and collected food all summer while the grasshopper sang.
