    From a message to our Facebook page: "I wanted to recognize three members of your girls' basketball team. I was at a restaurant (Barros) with my 3 year old special needs son, and three lovely young women from your team, still in uniform, saw him. He admires all things sports-related, and was in awe. They spent their evening playing with him, and even gave him a small basketball and showed him how to toss it back and forth. They represent the very best in our young people and made his night. You should be rightly proud of your wonderful students."
