Dear Secondary School Families: 

Happy “Big Red Day” eve! We have a full and exciting weekend of events to look forward to. Our student athletes have been performing admirably both in the classroom and on the courts, mats, track, ice, etc… This fall all of our teams qualified as Scholar Athletes teams! A few highlights for  this weekend - we could have a major milestone achieved on the wrestling mats (I won’t jinx it by saying too much). The girls Varsity basketball team will be playing Mekeel and the boys will face Bethlehem. This week marks the first time in school history that Tamarac boys basketball holds a #1 ranking!  Congratulations to each of the players, their families, Coach Medved and Coach DiCarlo, the Booster Club, and Ms. Van Zandt on this tremendous recognition. We are proud of all of our student athletes competing this weekend. Go Bengals!
