Upcoming Dates - See more information below

Spirit Day with Alessio's - Wednesday, May 13th (Until 8:00pm TODAY - See below)

Student Locker Clean Out Dates - May 19-21

Pickup of Locker Belongings

Students can pick up their belongings out of their lockers starting next week. Students can come to Riverwatch in small groups that are determined by your child’s last name. Please see the chart on the letter to parents, find the range of the alphabet for your child’s last name and then you can determine your child’s assigned date/time and which location student can enter (either Front or Gym Doors) so that parents know where to park.

Track uniforms will be collected in a box in the rotunda. Please make sure you bag up the pieces of your child’s uniform and label the bag so that they can easily be identified by the coaches when they check them in.

If you are unable to come up during the scheduled times, please click HERE for a link to a google form and we will be in touch with you.

Questions? After reading the updates, if you have further questions please let us know in the link HERE.

Yearbook - Last Call

It's not too late to order your yearbook, but hurry, because they are going fast! This has been an unprecedented year, and definitely one that you will want your child to remember. We always sell out, so there is no guarantee that there will be any left. ORDER NOW!

Yearbooks are scheduled to arrive in June and we will communicate pickup instructions when we have yearbooks available.

Good Afternoon Panthers!

This message is for ANY 6th or 7th grade student interested in being a part of the 2020 football team.

With school being out through the end of the year we will be modifying some processes. The most obvious being Spring Practice/Tryouts. I do not know what the future holds, but I want to be proactive so we are prepared to get to work as soon as it is safe and we get the green light. One way we can do that is by beginning to gather information. I need to two forms below completed if you have not already done so- the sooner we get this done the better. Please have this done by next Friday, April 24th.

The Place of Forsyth County

The Place of Forsyth has been working to support families during this difficult time in our community. This includes helping to distribute bags of food so that our kids and families have the essential items that they need. The Place continues to receive first time requests for assistance from families, including several who are in need of support due to the financial impact they are facing because of COVID-19.

Creating meal kits for families and giving financial assistance requires additional resources. We are confident this community will help us meet the needs of the most vulnerable during this time.
