Estrella High School Sidewinders played the homecoming game against Desert Hills on Thursday, September 22 at the Glendale Youth Sports Complex. The game was a nail-biter, but in the end Estrella won 44-32.
Desert Hills gave us the opportunity for some interceptions and turnovers, which helped push the game to our favor. The night's win was another positive notch that all but erased the close loss against West Phoenix the game before.
As always, the stands were filled with parents, students, and faculty enthusiastically cheering and encouraging the team. Thanks to Coach Maynard and the EHS Sidewinders for playing hard and making us proud!

This Friday, September 16, flex will not be held due to a scheduled inservice for all teachers and staff. This means that we only have two flex Fridays remaining for Block 1. Flexing the last week of the block is not allowed unless prior arrangements have been made with Mrs. Zordani or Ms. Alston.
Check your outstanding absences to be sure you are still receiving credit in your classes either through PASS, or with your teachers. Time is running out to make up those absences!

All proceeds go toward making the best Prom ever! So go on, snack away and feel good knowing your dollar went to benefit you and the rest of the campus.
The Sidewinders showed out last night and denied Summit even a taste of a touchdown. Estrella won 38-0 thanks to the effort of the entire team and Coach Maynard.
For the first home game and the second game of the season, our side had a great turnout of player families, teachers, and fellow students. Some parents even volunteered to help out with the scoreboard. Mrs. O's cheer squad was also out in force, and their cheers were heard across the field.
The game ended around 9:00 pm and everyone stayed until the very end. We are proud of our boys and Coach Maynard's ability to keep the 'team' mentality has so far proven to help bring two victories. We have a lot of season left, but we're continuing the positive motion forward. See the calendar for the complete schedule of games and come out to help cheer the Sidewinders on!
