The essence of cooperation has been the force that has held us together this year in overcoming the many odds against us. We have weathered the worst winter in many years when our school has been closed for weeks at a time.
In the real of student activity our sporting events have included an exceptional football team that has won both the district and regional tournaments, and improved girls’ and boys’ basketball teams. Our cheerleaders and band were outstanding with the cheerleaders winning the 14th Regional championship and the band boasting three All-State members. The vocational school provided an excellent curriculum and DECA again won many awards.
Administration, staff, faculty and parents were vitally aware of the needs of the students and that education must prepare a young person for a worthwhile career and a firm basis to meet the higher challenges of life.
