Weekly Recap

We had a great turnout for Future Darter Night this week! As seen in the picture, the potential for our program to continue growing is great and we are excited about what these members will bring into the program in the years ahead. Our football game did not end in victory, however, there was a tremendous amount of spirit and camaraderie that filled the air throughout the evening. Blue Darter Pride was evident!

Wise Words of Wisdom… 

Choices… Life is full of them… And… The best part is that we, as individuals, get to the make them. With these choices come the responsibility of accepting the consequences, both positive and negative. As you have opportunity to communicate as a family, take the opportunity to discuss making good choices. Often times the right choice is not always the easiest choice.
