THANK YOU to our students and staff for participating in the Great ShakeOut earthquake drill.

Your support during this and every drill, as well as real emergencies, is crucial to the safety of our staff and students. In the event of a real emergency, family reunification will take place in the student lot to check your student out. You will not report to the front office. We will support each other and our students. Flexibility and communication are vital. Our goal is to keep everyone safe. Our hard work to prepare and practice emergency procedures will help us meet our goal.

Fun fact from yesterday's drill: 2154 students evacuated their classrooms, went to their evacuation area, and were all accounted for in 24 minutes.

Please take the time to talk with your students about their emergency plans outside of school hours.

Thank you again for your support.


Come and enjoy a Pancake Breakfast, with student entertainment by our FIVE choirs and many of your favorite soloists. Breakfast and music served between 7:30 am and 9:30 am. Get your tickets from a choir member (preordered by October 24) or, they can be purchased at the door for $12.

Each October, millions of Americans of Italian descent come together to celebrate Italian American Heritage Month and reflect on their families’ histories, traditions, and values. This special heritage month was first celebrated in 1989 when it was proclaimed by President George H.W. Bush and the United States Congress to honor the achievements and contributions of Italian immigrants and their descendants living in the U.S. This year, representatives from the Class of 2022, made a video commemorating this very special event by highlighting the many contributions Italian Americans have made.
