Hi everyone,

I have some exciting news to share on behalf of our athletic program. Together with Hudl, we plan to offer a livestream of every home varsity game played in the gym or on our field.

If you can attend our games, we encourage you to do so. We want to give people who can’t physically attend our games the ability to tune in and support Owl athletics. With our livestream, working parents, faraway family members, alumni, and anyone else who wants to watch can support our athletes.

We will be selling pay-per-view passes on an annual, monthly, and single-game basis. A single-game pass will be $8, a monthly pass will be $15, and a yearly pass will be $75. These prices are intended to be similar to the costs of attending the game.

By offering fans the ability to watch our games through a high-level broadcast, we’re hoping to earn critical revenue for our athletic program that helps us [buy new uniforms/equipment, etc.] Thank you for your support in helping us reach that goal.

You can access our broadcast using this link https://team1sports.com/highschool/ar/?S=mcgeheeowls . I will also be reaching out weekly to share our upcoming livestream¬ing schedule, and the link to purchase or access the broadcast.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,
Marcus Haddock
Justin Holt

AUGUST 2022.

Student learning is a shared responsibility between schools and parents. Technology is transforming how and where students learn. The classroom has been extended to any location with an internet connection. As students spend more time learning and socializing online, we all need to work together to ensure our students stay healthy and safe. The Social Media Awareness Campaign (SMACtalk) was formed in response to this need. The purpose of SMACtalk is to bring awareness, provide resources, and increase communication for teachers, parents, and students.
