News & Announcements


BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT Our annual Back to School Night will be on Wednesday, September 24th. The program begins at 6:00 pm in the school gym with a Welcome/Introduction of staff members followed by student performances by the band, choir and cheer classes.
Period by period classroom visits begin at 6:30 pm. This gives families time to attend each class, in 10 minute intervals, and hear from the teacher about the student expectations and curriculum requirements.
Please take time to print your students' schedule of classes and a copy of the school map so you will be prepared for your visit on the night of the 24th for our Back to School Night. See you there!
