They say that April showers bring May flowers, but April is also the month for another round of nominations for the Renaissance Student of Character. This month’s attribute is CONSIDERATION. Are you considerate? Do you consistently demonstrate polite, well-mannered behavior towards others? Do you show that “I care” and “you matter” attitude? If so...then this is your month! Your teachers will be on the lookout for this important character trait, so open a door for someone, greet everyone with a kind smile, and open the window so that fly can fly away to live another day.

Students, we know you love to support our teams, but at this time due to COVID, we will not be able to have any fans in attendance at away games for volleyball and limited fans at away football games. Home volleyball and football games will also have limited availability, as we are allowing each athlete to bring in only 2 guests. Thanks for your continued support of Bulldog Athletics.

All athletes trying out must have a physical on file in the High School office. You will also have to fill out necessary paperwork to play. Sports fee must be paid before the first game.
