Fonseca Golden Eagles!

It was a great season for both boys' and girls' basketball teams as they both competed in the city playoffs with our boys' team winning it all and becoming the 2017 city champions! The Fonseca Family had its first school-wide pep rally before the games and a victory parade celebration after the championships! Teamwork, perseverance, and your effort pay off both on and off the court!!! We are all so proud of your hard work and effort this season!!!
