Did you know?

Wednesdays are Asynchronous Learning Days. What is Asynchronous Learning? I'm so glad you asked. Asynchronous is a student-centered teaching method online; students engage at their own pace. So, Wednesdays ARE a school day. Students need to log into Canvas every Wednesday to receive and complete homework from their teacher. The students who DO NOT log into Canvas on Wednesdays are marked with an 'unexcused' absence.

November is Native American Heritage Month

Celebrate Native American Heritage month by learning about the courageous men and women who made great sacrifices for civil rights and to preserve their culture.

When we focus on our gratitude, the tide of disappointment goes out and the tide of love rushes in.
