9. An iPad with a pair of Beats headphones was left in the boys’ locker room last night. If you found these items, please return them to the office. If you know where these items are, please inform the office.

10. In yesterday's girls' game our varsity Falcons got off to a very slow start, scoring only two points in the first quarter.  But after that our girls got going. We trailed by only four at halftime. In the third quarter we held the Demons from Dedham scoreless and we took the lead.  At the end the Demons put a determined effort to catch up, but our Falcons held them off for a well deserved victory. Thanks to Danaee and Elise for helping us.  It was great team victory for our Falcons as each and every player did positive things that enabled us to win.   Way to start 2015, girls.  Today's practice is at 3:00.

11. The JV boys played also played Dedham yesterday. The boys kept things close through the first quarter before Dedham pulled away for the win.
