Happy Sunday night, my friends! We’re gearing up for another week, so let’s make it a great one. There are some congratulations to go around–our football team won on Friday and made the playoffs for the first time since 2008, so way to go, Knights! Big cheers to the Band and Color Guard and Cheerleaders and all of you students who were there Friday night cheering them on. We’ve got another big game on Friday night against ACA–make sure you’re there to support our team! Another great congratulations to the Racing Knights Cross Country team! The Girls team finished 1st in 1A-4A and the Boys team finished 2nd. Way to go, Knights!
