Please help keep the Faculty Room area(s) free of students. Lately students have been visiting with and without staff for various reasons. Also, please do not purchase students sodas from the machines or allow them to go in to buy them themselves. It's very helpful to close the doors when you enter or leave.

Thanks for your cooperation!

Great Art!

Be sure to go see Kristen Green's students' art show at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts. The opening reception is Sunday, May 8th 2-4. The show runs until Monday May 23.

Are you social?

Have you contributed to our school social fund yet this year? If not, please consider a $25 contribution and additional donations to go toward our wonderful retirees' gifts.


Thank you!
