A Long History With Bobcat Traditions

Each day, students lead the school in reciting the school’s mission and pledging to, “Do our Best.” Students are recognized on their birthdays with an announcement, certificate and wristband. Each month, students participate in a student selected club. Themed months and door decorations are based on character traits. During the 2017-2018 Beta Club State Competitions, Bobcats participated in the District Day and placed first in Book Battle, T-shirt design, and Special Talent. They also won third place for Quiz Bowl.
