Wishing you all a wonderful Spring Break & Easter Weekend!!

School returns on Wednesday April 3



Yearbooks : Deadline To Order is April 15

Have you ordered your yearbook?  The deadline to order and pay is April 15th.   If you are unsure as to whether you have ordered a yearbook, please check with Ms. Waller in the Accounting office prior to Spring Break.  Don’t wait.  Lots of students wait until it is too late to buy a yearbook, then they are disappointed in June when they are sold out.

For all students who would like extra help in academic classes, help from Education Assistants is available four days a week (MONDAY-THURSDAY) for one hour after school in room 235. All academic subjects are welcome, but especially if you are struggling in Math & Science. This is open to all students in all grades.

Magic Wand

Hey Grads! The Magic Wand is a non-profit organization that offers an inexpensive and eco-friendly alternative to grad outfits for any students. This is a great opportunity to borrow, rather than buy, a complete special outfit for graduation. The only cost to the student is a small fee which covers the cost of cleaning.  Please contact Elizabeth Suresus to view her selection of grad dresses, suits, tuxedos, shoes, and accessories.
