Grade School: Tuesday 11/20 1:25 pm

The Trojan football team, cheerleaders, drum line, and Trojanettes will be at the grade school to see all of the little Trojans. Players will be escorted in with a Little Trojan and we will blow the roof off the grade school. Unfortunately, due to space limitations this assembly is not open to the public.

High School: Tuesday 11/20 2:25 pm

After rocking the grade school, we will start our 2018 State Championship Assembly at MFHS. MFMS students will join the HS to get fired up. We have plenty of room at the high school for ALL of Trojan Nation to come cheer on the Trojans. So take a half day off work and come help us celebrate :) This is a special group of student-athletes so let's let them know we are 100% behind them.

Breakfast with the Trojans: Thursday 11/22 7:15 am

Wake up early on Thanksgiving day and have a light breakfast with the Trojans. Then stick around and watch them practice for the last time in 2018. Only 16 teams are still practicing and our Trojans are one of them so make sure not to miss it.

Post Game Assembly: Friday 11/23 5:45 pm

After leaving Tent City (see below) be sure to join us at MFHS to welcome the team back in style. We will have a welcome home celebration where we announce each member of the team and coaching staff. You can get pictures with your favorite Trojan and the state trophy.
