Saints Athletic Booster Campus Clean Up Day This Saturday
Last Saturday, the Saints Athletic Booster Club held the first Campus Clean Up Day. We were blessed to have 11 students and 10 parents, along with Mr. Johnson and Mr. Boothe work on several projects around campus. We want to thank all of these students and supporters of our school for coming out and getting involved. I can not stress how important it is and how grateful we are to have our community pull together. We need to get another big turnout this coming Saturday, September 14 to finish up a few projects to really get the Saints Athletic Field and campus looking it's best. We are asking for your help to come out from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. The students will get a dress down day pass and all will get lunch when we are finished. Please contact Dan King with questions: dankinghome@msn.com .
