Please notice: AO is not scheduled for the week. (That time will now have teachers available for review). If a student does not have to utilize the Make-up Hour on Day 4, he/she is excused. However, bus schedules will remain the same as usual. There is no class on Friday, nor is there class the following Monday. We pick back up on Jan.26th with a usual "Green Day" Schedule.

Counselors Facilitate Tolerance Training

Our 9th graders were able to participate in Tolerance Training during their Health Classes this week. The exercises that are led by our Guidance Counselors encourage students to reflect on themselves and what they can do to be accepting and supportive of those around them. This program allows students to experience some life-changing revelations and gives students strategies to be more open-minded and less judgmental.
