On Friday, August 14 we got to see our Bobcats in person, via our socially distanced Back to School Parade. It was HOT, with it topping over 100 degrees in the afternoon. While a heatwave definitely made things interesting for all of us,  it was all worth it to get to see our students. Please enjoy some photos of our teachers and staff, and even a few cameos of our Bobcats. We can't wait to get back to school with everyone, but for now, fun days like this help get us through. Go Bobcats!
