 8th GRADERS ONLY: The VMS-8th grade cheerleaders are selling a chance to win $$$ at the pep rally. For $1,  you can sign up for a chance to make a half court shot during the pep rally.  We will sell tickets, then draw 10 names at the pep rally. The person who makes the shot takes the $$$.

Track season is approaching for 7th grade students.  If you are a 7th grade student interested in going out for the track team, be prepared to start on Monday, Feb. 8.  If you haven't had a physical, you must have one before you can participate.  Sign-ups will be in your 2nd period athletic class on Feb. 8.

 Starting Monday, February 8th track students will need to ride their normal bus to the Freshman Academy.  Each student will need one note signed by the office for their driver to keep.  If you do not have a regular bus, please see Mr. Partee on the day of practice.
