Free Throw = Free Dress Day!

Mrs. Goldsworthy made her free throw at the pep rally on Friday, so next Friday, March 10th will be a free dress day for students! Parents, make sure students follow free dress day guidelines.

Join the Fun at Fine Arts Night!

This coming Tuesday evening is our annual Fine Arts Night, where students get to showcase their talents in singing, recitation, dancing, and more! Performers have been practicing, and you’re in for a treat! Our show starts at 5:30pm in the gym. We’ll also have an intermission for the audience to purchase delicious and delightfully decorated cupcakes submitted by our student bakers! There will be awards for best Flavor, Presentation, and Originality! Submit Cupcake Contest entries in the gym from 5:00-5:25 pm. Make sure students fill out and attach the Cupcake Contest entry form to their submission, or it will not get judged. If your student plans to participate in the cupcake contest, help us get an estimate so we set up the right amount of tables.
