Unfortunately there was not a fire truck escort this evening due to the department being called out to a fire prior to the team arriving back in town. We want to thank our first responders for all that they do and hope they stay safe this evening! Our thoughts are also with those involved in the call.

Congratulations Class of 2024-You are well on your way and may you always show off your purple pride! Thank you to Ms. Angel Baker for the wonderful picture. "Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go So make the best of this test, and don't ask why It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time It's something unpredictable But in the end, it's right We hope you had the time of your life" --Green Day

Would you like a piece of Minutemen memorabilia? Please take a look at the pictures below. As a a part of our locker room renovations, we salvaged the benches from the boys' and girls' locker rooms. We grabbed the benches that our district can reuse in the future leaving the following to be deemed "surplus property." Each bench is for sale for $20, no matter the size. Here is the following sizes that we have available at first come, first serve: UPDATE: We have one 10 foot long bench with beige legs remaining.
