Round 3 vs. Walton this Week

Reminder, no classes this week. We hope that everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving with their families this week. The win versus Marietta last week advanced our Trojans to the 3rd round of the GHSA 7A Football Playoffs. And! Walton upset Buford, so we have the opportunity to host them. It is going to be a great game! Let’s GO TROJANS!!!

District Honor Jazz Band

On Tuesday we had 4 students who performed in the District Honor Jazz Band in Ringgold, GA! Please congratulate Connor Haley, Nathan Stagliano, Madison Pate, and Justin Arnold. They represented our school very well and performed an OUTSTANDING concert with only 3 rehearsals. It was very impressive to see them perform at such a high level and each of them had improvisation solos!!!
