Welcome to Week 24 (Feb 25-Mar 1)

  • ·       Thanks to all staff for helping with Course Selection and ensuring our students register for the 2019-20 school year.  Your support with this request is most appreciated.  A special thanks to the Guidance Department for bringing us into the 21st century with a more technological way to register our kids while making it easier for the rest of us! Big thanks to Paulette and Lynn as well for all of their hard work leading up to the Course Selection Days. Please follow-up with any students who did not submit their forms.  This information is essential for planning the staffing and scheduling for the school.  


    ·       A big thank you to John Notten and Marissa Largo for their “Final 50” presentation at last week’s parent meeting.  Parents were very engaged and appreciated both of them for taking the time to provide tips and tools so that parents and guardians can better support their children in the last portion of the school year.


    ·       Thanks to SAC, Lena, and Dabbagh for another Spirit Week and coming up with the new ideas this year!
