Friday Message

Building Successful Futures: Every Student, Every Day

It's the end of Quarter 1! I honestly can't believe how fast this quarter has gone! Things always seem to speed up around end of quarters!! All activities have had a wonderful couple of weeks! Thank you so much to the parents and community for all your support, we couldn't do it without you!


As we gear up for our last home football game tonight, please remember that we recycle all plastic bottles and cans. We will have extra recycling bins tonight, for a fairly large crowd! Please make sure you put your bottles and cans in those bins and not in the trash cans. Thanks!
Senior Parents

We are looking at changing the graduation gowns this year. To save money, we are looking at doing away with the stoles that the students wear. This will also help the almost always windy graduation ceremony! The picture to the right is a mock gown. We would have red and yellow or yellow and red depending on the gown. The students have seen the gowns so please talk to them about your thoughts.

Upcoming Info

  • This Tuesday - All Stitched up will be here if you are interested in Letter Jackets.
  • October 26 - Picture Retakes
  • Jostens was here to take order for graduation gear - seniors you do not need to order stoles. If you weren't able to order Thursday you can call Josten's or order on line.
