What a Weekend!

It doesn't get much better than this...ALL our football teams won and now advance on to their next rounds!

And ALL our cheer teams left it out on the mat down in Trenton at the State competition, with our JV team placing first and JPW second!

While the weather left much to be desired, each and every kid, no matter what team they are on, rose to the occasion. We are very proud of each and every accomplishment and performance that took place and can't wait to see what lies ahead.
