Hey seniors!  A sign-up sheet has been posted right outside of room 151 for anyone who has not gotten their picture taken for the yearbook yet.  A picture day for both seniors and underclassmen will be held Oct. 16 so make sure to sign up as soon as possible.  This is also your ONLY chance to get a retake, if desired.  Just remember to sign up outside of room 151 this week!


If you purchased an orange army t-shirt go after school to room 132 to pick up.  If you missed ordering a shirt the first time, we’re taking a second order.  Fill out an order form and pay $10 during all three lunches every day this week!

Hey, Jack……Yeah, Ethan. I already bagged up all of the bibs and the balls and I am getting ready to polish your boots for tomorrow’s game. Did you know that in the United States it is illegal to kill or harm or take parts of bald and golden eagles including nests and eggs?

Seriously – well I guess my breakfast is going to send me to jail in all 54 of them.

Last night, the boys varsity soccer team defeated the Olathe North Eagles by a score of 4-0.

The Bowman brothers, Ethan and Seth, each tucked one goal into the net.  Patrick “MO” Shreve banged one into the upper corner and the FRESHMAN, Jack “Attack” Lammers notched his first assist and punched in his first varsity goal. A stout defense and Jared Wolken put up their second shutout. Great job boys!  Thanks to all the fans that filled the stands.

Tomorrow night, the cougars continue their playing week against the “RAIDAS” of Shawnee Mission South.   Game time is 7:00.  Location is Shawnee Mission South.
