Our MISD Athletic Word of the Week is “Resiliency”. Coaches visited with athletes about being strong minded and developing the ability to recover or make adjustments to misfortune or changes. If we have failed in an effort, rise up and try again. Never given in! Find a way to make it work! Our Athletes of the Week are: Macey Sullivan, Andie Baldridge, Andrew Patton, Travis Goins, Adam Bailey, Raul Franco, Cole Nowell, Emily Nulisch, Joshua Moore, Erika Forcher.
Parents, the DMS Athletic Booster Club is still taking memberships. We would really like to get a high participation number this year. We are up from last year, but not by much. The contact person for memberships is Liz Burton firstname.lastname@example.org
The UIL Grade Check is today at 3:45pm. Athletes must be passing all subjects to continue playing in games. Parents, please check in on your athlete and their class grades.
