8.        Change in Parent night. At a joint board meeting of the TD school board and the Armour school board, it was decided to only announce and honor seniors at our respective parent nights. Seniors will get their parent/guardian names to coaches as to how they want them introduced. Each mother will receive flowers and each father receives a small bag of candy. The boards want this to be consistent regardless of where the parent night is held whether in Tripp or in Armour.  

This is a change as we previously announced everyone associated with the team. That will NO LONGER be the case for this year at least. ONLY SENIORS AND THEIR PARENT/GUARDIANS WILL BE  INTRODUCED or announced. This includes any stat people, cheerleaders, videographers, or managers.  

9.        Congratulations to Krista Fuoss who was selected as “Student of the Month” and Courtney Krsnak who was chosen as “Citizen of the Month.”
