Good afternoon everyone! Hope you stay warm over the next week!


We are officially in the throes of summer school planning and are very much looking forward to the summer...and warmer weather! We are currently working through protocols to help ensure the health and safety of students, staff, and families. Some of these are detailed in the Health & Safety Protocols section below. We are very excited to be able to offer in-person programming at this time; however you will notice that we have had to make some challenging decisions in terms of modification of some procedures from the pre-COVID days.


Summer School registration will again be done through Infinite Campus. Registration is slated to begin on April 12. It is important that you take a bit of time to ensure you are able to log in to the parent portal prior to that date. The summer school course catalog will be published by April 5. If you have any questions or issues regarding the Parent Portal, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Class Spotlight: Weight Training

We are excited to again offer Weight Training classes during summer school this year. There will be Beginning Weight Training for Grades 7 & 8 as well as Advanced Weight Training for Grades 9-12. We offer multiple sections of Advanced Weight Training at 5:45a, 6:30a, 8:00a and 10:00a. At this time, Beginning Weight Training will be offered at 9:00a. These classes focus on weights, speed, and agility. What better way to stay fit, feel good, prepare for the upcoming athletic seasons, and build those muscles! Thanks to Mr. Schimming, Mrs. Grosinske, and Mr. Bee for waking up extra early to offer these all-important classes!
