3rd Place Finish in 6GB ASA Basketball Tourney (October 10)
The Lady Bulldogs defeated Breese District 12 by a score of 17-15 to capture third place in the 6th Grade Girls Basketball Tournament hosted by ASA October 9 and 10.
We would like to thank the many people that supported the PTA's Cosmic Bingo and Auction event that was held on Saturday, September 26. Countless local businesses and individuals made donations towards the auction. The auction is the main money maker for an event like this, so the generosity of the donors is integral to its success. Those in attendance opened up their wallets to play bingo, buy tickets, and bid on items. We are pleased to report a profit of $16,040.85 from the Cosmic Bingo fundraiser. Thank you to everyone involved for another very successful year!
