If you have any questions or concerns regarding your grades please see your teacher. If you cannot do it during class time, please be aware that teachers are in their classrooms until 2:45PM every day. There are no excuses at the end of the quarter as to why you were not successful. We are here for student success and learning. For questions, contact the academic affairs office by clicking here.
This will be our 3rd year for Thankful Thursday's. The teachers and staff have tremendously enjoyed your generosity the past two years. On each of the Thursdays in November, the parents volunteer to bring in treats for our faculty and staff to enjoy as a sign of gratitude for all that they do for our students. 
Attention Parents!
