Bobcat Weekly Blast – November 6

Good Afternoon Bobcats!


It was brought to my attention that my previous weekly emails were coming to your inbox super small, please let me know if this one is doing that for you as well!


Reminder that we have no school on Friday, November 10 in observance of Veteran’s Day.


Ultimate Frisbee:

Congratulations to our ultimate team who ended their regular season as the first place seed going into the playoffs! They will have a playoff game this Thursday at Chapel Hill High School at 4pm.


Thank you:

Thank you to everyone who donated and volunteered to the Honor Roll Ceremony last week! It was well attended and appreciated by all of the students.



Shoutout to both Ms. Alford and the Spirit Club as well as Ms. Price and Student Council for putting on a fantastic pep rally on Friday and a beautiful dance on Saturday!


Lost and Found:

Please check the lost and found, as it is filling up and everything will be donated before Thanksgiving Break!


Student Parking Reminders:

This is a friendly reminder to all student drivers and parents picking up their students that the numbered spaces in the student parking lot are spaces that have been purchased by our student drivers and should not be parked in. Students: if a car is parked in your assigned parking spot, please let myself or Deputy Huffman know and we will take care of it right away!
