Another basketball season has come and gone. We were lucky enough to host boys and girls regionals. I want to thank all of the volunteers that make everything run so smoothly. John Butler, Jon and Allison Adkins, and Paul Lawrence on the girls games. For the boys side I want to thank Roger Wilburn, Rick Conner, Matt Donkin, and Jim Johnson. These guys have been doing this for a long time. Thank you all for you dedication and work for our student athletes!

A message for Denning Elementary School and the District: a little after 10 a.m., an individual from the neighborhood was having a mental health episode and began banging on the exterior doors of Denning School. The building immediately went on lockdown and 911 was called. Officers arrived and apprehended the individual. There was no weapon involved. All faculty, staff, and students acted appropriately and orderly just like they practice in drills. All is back to normal now. We will now talk with all of our students and reassure them and go back to our normal day as we celebrate the 100th day of school today. We thank everyone for their assistance during these few stressful moments.
