This week is a full week with many activities going on around school. On Tuesday night, the Varsity Volleyball team will continue their playoffs when they host Liberty County at 7:00pm. Thursday night is a big night for all Baker students and their families. We will have Open House along with our first art show. The Art Show pieces will be displayed in the classrooms. As with any art show, the pieces can be purchased for $2.00 each. The money raised in the classrooms will be used for classroom supplies. The Book Fair will also be going on all week during school hours as well as Thursday night. Old cheer uniforms will be on sale for $10.00 each piece (in the lunchroom during Open House) as a fundraiser to help the Varsity Cheerleaders fund their way to Orlando this December. Friday night football will be traveling to South Walton for a game against the Seahawks. Come out this week and support our GATORS!!!!!
