Come on out to support the Lady Dawgs in their district opener, and then head over to Bulldog Stadium to watch the boys take on Center at 7:30 P.M. on the gridiron. The theme for this week is “Salute to Service,” so make plans to attend the pep rally (2:30 P.M. at the gym) and the pre-game ceremony (7:00 P.M. at the stadium) to show your support for our military and first responders.
