Celebrate our Veterans

Friday’s game versus Douglas County was a nail biter! Our band students did a fantastic job cheering on our Trojans to help them over come and win the game. We look forward to cheering them on loudly again this week as we enter the first round of the playoffs and face off against Creekview HS.

Additionally, we have prepared a concert for Veteran’s Day. Some of the music will be presented during the ROTC assemblies on Thursday and the football game on Saturday in addition to at our Concert on Thursday evening.
