Do you like to dance? This year there will be dances after the home boys' varsity games (TONIGHT, Jan. 9, Jan. 30, Feb. 20, and Feb. 27). It will start right after the game and ends at 11:30pm. It will be a night full of music and fun. It will cost $5 per person to get in and only Kent City students can attend. Dress casually and be prepared to have fun.
Attention softball players: Sign-ups for morning hitting on Tuesdays and Thursdays after break are in the office. Please sign up for one day per week at a time.
