Dillos win Bi-District!!

Body
The San Saba Armadillos (8- 2) defeated the Forsan Buffaloes (5-5) last Friday evening in Wall, 31-17. San Saba went into halftime tied with Forsan but finally wore the Buffaloes down and outscored their opponent 21-7 in the second half. The win vaults the Dillos to the 2nd round of the playoffs for the 3rd consecutive year, a feat no other team has done, and sets up a game next week in Henrietta against the #9 state ranked Panhandle Panthers.

Coyote Pride

Change is inevitable. We transitioned to a four-day schoo week this year, with Mondays off. We’ve transitioned from asynchronous learning las spring, to all students returning for face-to-face instruction as the new school year began, back to asynchronous learning, and back to face-to-face instruction again. Face-to-face instruction with the teacher and socia interaction in the classroom is the preferred method of instruction for educating our students What we have all learned during this pandemic is the ability to adapt to change. The only thing constant this year will be change. Students and staff wil complete the week ending November 20th, then have a week off for Thanksgiving, then more weeks of school until Christmas break and the end of the fal semester. Time flies!

Because the “normal” breakfast celebration

Body
Because the “normal” breakfast celebration this year on Veteran’s Day could not happen, the PAL (Peer Assistance and Leadership) class sponsored by Mrs. Thomas wanted to do something special for our Veterans this year. They decided to collect funds and invite any Veteran to the Corner Cafe for a free taco and drink! The group collected $442.60 at the game Friday night, November 6th, and would like to thank everyone that donated to this cause. They would also like to thank Larry Hibler for helping make this happen. Pictured is Julisa Vega, a 2-year member of the PAL class.
