Weekly Wrap Up 

Congrats to the Blue Darters on a 9-1 regular season as they wrapped up the week with a 49-14 victory over Evans High. The Blue Darter Marching Band was a great boost on the evening and had a great run of their full Half-Time show as we prepare for MPA this coming week. (You can check it out by clicking HERE!)

We would like to thank ALL of our parents who made the evening possible! From those who came early to feed the kids to our loading crew, uniform team, and chaperones…. We THANK YOU!

Calendar Fundraiser 

We kick off our annual Apopka Calendar sale on Wednesday! This fundraisers is a true win-win for our program as we offer a product that benefits each resident offering hundreds a dollars in coupons to APOPKA-BASED businesses that can be used throughout the year. The calendars are $10 each and are a GREAT Christmas Present/Stocking Stuffer that will continue to give back all year long. Students will be issued one each on Wednesday and will be able to check out as many as they are able to sell for the two week period of the fundraiser. The AHS Band is the only seller of this calendar so be sure to offer it to any and every person you come in contact with!

Tumblers/Magnets
