  • On October 20, 1973, the iconic Sydney Opera House in Sydney Australia opened. If you have a chance look it up! Also on this day in 1977, a plane carrying famous rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, crashed killing several members of the band. Some of Lynyrd Skynrd’s most famous songs are Free Bird and Sweet Home Alabama.

  • Unfortunately, our lady Eagles were defeated by the number 1 seed, Heard Co., yesterday afternoon. As a former coach, I saw lots of improvement from your first game to the last one. Build on that...your team is young! Good luck to the 8th graders on your next adventure: moving up to JV or Varsity at MZHS.

  • Did you show your parents your report card??? Good, bad, or ugly, it’s better to be honest than to hide it. 


Boy that was a lot today. Have a great day and get outside this afternoon if you can.
