Thanks to all the coaches and players for the time and effort spent on another great season. Hats off to the band and cheerleaders for their efforts in boosting our school spirit.

Gerald McKee commented that swine validation numbers were up slightly from last year. Local exhibitors validated 84 pigs at the county show barn for the San Saba County Livestock Show to be held Jan 14-16, 2010. Cold weather exerts more demands on show animals. Proper shelter and nutrition are important in keeping show animals healthy and growing. Contact Mr. McKee for assistance as necessary with your show animals.
The elementary and junior high academic meets were held this week. The junior high traveled to Rochelle to compete on Tuesday, and on Thursday Richland Springs hosted the elementary academic meet. Thanks to Melanie Smith for her help in organizing the academic meets.
