It has been an interesting week as we continue to grow and build our programs.  We’ve had wins and we’ve had losses.  We’ve had to cancel tournaments and meets.  But we’ve also marveled at our growing student body and the support they’re giving at games.  Who would have thought 3 years ago that we’d have...

One of my favorite questions to ask in an interview also happens to be the one that brings tears most often. Let me tell you why I love it.

At Parent Conference a few weeks ago, we released an athletic video talking about how far we’ve come as a school in just 2 years, and in the middle of a pandemic! In that video one of the last things I said was that “this will be our best season yet!” But not even I...

I just witnessed 118 high school students during a morning gym takeover! Kids were playing basketball and volleyball. There was a dance party and many break out groups at the tables, in the stands, and in the teen area. It was full! It gave me a vision of what our gym is going to look...
