    PBIS Slime Friday!

    Seven lucky students from each classroom that have shown great attributes to the core values of PBIS were invited to Slime Friday.  Students made their very own container of slime! We are looking for more students to slide into the final quarter of school practicing the core values of PBIS.

    Thundercat Basketball

    The Thundercat basketball team had their first home game of the season on March 15 against the Wright Knights. At first glance, the Knights seemed to have an advantage based on the size and height of their players.  However, the Thundercats came with speed and had better accuracy in their shooting to bring home our second win of the season, all the while being supported by the Thundercat Cheerleaders.  A loud Thundercat Roar for the basketball team and cheerleaders!
