GENERAL UPDATE: There was a donut celebration today for our A/B honor roll students and a pizza luncheon for all A honor roll recipients – this is our last such celebration of the year. This is a special recognition for a job well done and the numbers were impressive as well after three quarters complete. Congratulations to our students!
Please help our student make good dress code decisions for school attendance – all of our classes are air conditioned and comfortable. Current student enrollment is 1767.
