In addition to our normal practice schedule on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday we have the All-in-One Sale wrapping up on Thursday, many Homecoming festivities on Friday (Pep-rally, parade, and game), and our final competition on Saturday! It is going to be a very busy week, but I am sure that together we can make it a week to remember.
