Please check out this week's attached eagle eye for an overview of the week's schedule, including game times, a look at important upcoming dates, and ministry opportunities.
Varsity Soccer had a nail biter finish to their season during Saturday's championship game. Going into double overtime and penalty kicks they walked away with a 4-3 win and the championship title! In addition, congratulations go out to the following players for their league awards: Rylan Laboca (2nd Team All-League), Ian Gustafsson (2nd Team All-League and Goalie of the Year), Elijah Nikiforets (1st Team All-League), and Zach Nelson (1st Team All-League and Player of the Year)! Way to Go Team!
Varsity Volleyball had 2 great post-season wins last week advancing them to the top 8. Normally, they would be headed to the State Tournament at this stage, but due to changes stemming from COVID protocols, they will play their quarterfinals game on Tuesday night at home against Rogue Valley Adventist at 7:00 PM. Winner advances to the final 4 and the State Tournament in Redmond on Friday.
Lost and Found Overflows - We have an ever growing pile of lost and found items and have run out of room for it all. Everything from jackets and sweatshirts to lunch boxes and water bottles. Please take a moment to stop on by and look for any items that belong to your family before they become Lost and Gone! Lost and found is located just inside the school doors off the courtyard in the lower hallway. Due to rainy weather in the forecast, we may not be able to put items out on a table in the courtyard.
Operation Christmas Child - If you'd like to help kids around the world hear about Christ, please pray for Operation Christmas Child and consider sending in payment for shipping, our current greatest need. You can also continue to send in items for boxes - toys, hygiene items, or school supplies (no war-related items, liquids/gels, or food/candy) - until this Friday, November 5th!
