A Final Word from Mr. Cable

This will be my last Cable Connection of the school year and I want to express my heartfelt thanks for a great school year. I have enjoyed partnering with you and your student/s this year as we have all navigated a new campus, new programs, and new relationships. I greatly appreciate the support our parent community gives the school and our students. I am already looking forward to next school year as we refine and adjust to continue to offer our very best to our students and families. Please take a moment to reflect on all of the great memories this school year has provided. As you transition into summer, please take time to to rest, connect with family and those closest to you, and have fun.

Middle School Girls Soccer Championship

Please join me in congratulating our middle school girl's soccer team! Last Wednesday they clenched the 1st place title for the second year in a row against Jefferson Academy. After being defeated by Jefferson Academy in the regular season, the girls went into the tournament knowing they had something to prove. The championship game was a hard fought battle. It was 0-0 going into the second half but not for long. Two amazing goals from Lauren Clingman and Erica Derby gave us the momentum to finish the game strong. A 2-0 win over Jefferson Academy was truly the best way to end our season, and we are proud of each and every one of our girls.
