Although they did not advance to regional qualifying tournament, the team impressed the judges with their solution to the problem of wild elephant poaching and showed gracious professionalism (along with other FLL core values) throughout the day.

The boys Flag Football team defeated Dana 20-6 to earn their first win of the season.  With great Quarterback play by D'Arie Jones throwing touchdowns to both Rodrick Gordon and Daniel Leanos and a long run by Salomone Ahoia, the offense seems to be hitting stride at just the right time.  Their defense was solid throughout the whole game lead by Rogelio Soto and Makai Griffin on the defensive line and Joshua Sanchez and Charles Keymermateng at linebackers.  The Panthers look for their second win in a row as they play Jane Addams this Thursday 10/27 at home at 2pm.

You are probably aware by now about the Creepy/Killer Clown phenomenon that is taking over social media.  It started in the rural south in August and has now spread nationwide--and will more than likely be around until Halloween.  

 

Many of our students and families have seen news about sightings, school closures, and threats.  Although it is a joke/hoax this is scaring a lot of children.
