Powder Puff Football -- Nov. 19th
The powder puff game will be sponsored by the Student Council this year (NHS has sponsored this event in the past). It will be Sat. Nov. 19th beginning at 10:00 a.m. at Sallee Field. Proceeds this year will benefit the Softball Team and help them pay for their State Rings. Also, If you could get the word out for me, I would like to ask if there are any Elementary football coaches (Adults) who would be willing to referee the games. It's for a good cause. They can call the highschool at 371-3382 or send me an email
