Food Drive

We will be kicking off our annual food drive in November. Our efforts will go toward supporting local food banks for the holiday season. Students will be encouraged to bring in what they are able to provide. More information to come in our weekly bulletin to students.


Struggling in a class? Need a tutor? We have tutors available to help you!

How to access tutoring:

  • Let the teacher for the class you are struggling with know that you need a tutor
  • Let your homeroom teacher know that you would like to work with a tutor during that time
  • Come in for after school homework help sessions on Tuesdays (all subjects) and Wednesdays (Math specific)
  • Make an appointment to meet with an online tutor outside of the school day or on weekends

Contact Mrs. Mozrall (On-Time Graduation Specialist) if you have questions about how to set up tutoring!
