HOUSE OF HONOR
Congratulations to Falcon House for winning the first quarter! They had 1271 hours of community service, which helped boost them into first place. In honor of Falcon House winning the quarter, Mr. Post has said that all Falcon House members may have a day of Spirit Wear this Friday, October 14 but students MUST wear a Falcon House t-shirt (previous year t-shirt is ok).
