With nice teamwork and all players contributing to the win, the upper grade team stayed undefeated by winning 5-2 on Saturday, 9/23. The hot conditions have been the story of “fall” soccer this year with game time temperatures in the 90s. GO FALCONS!

Thank you to all the parents assisting with transportation and to NELHS for hosting the Solar Eclipse Bash! It was a great experience! A science fair of sorts, hosted by our creator God.

“Backpack-2-School Night” on 8/14 was a fun time!  Great to see so many students and parents…..and the kickball was not too bad either.  Thank you to all who pitched in to make this event a success again this year!
