Fall is in the air

The 6 week grading period ended last Friday, and grades will be updated in Infinite Campus by noon on Monday, Sept 26. Please make sure you are keeping track of your child's progress. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your students teacher, counselor, or Assistant Principal and request a conference.


We are moving into a fun time of year where concerts, recitals, and Theater shows will be happening. We will do our best to showcase them here, but be on the lookout and take the time to attend and see the great things our students do.

College and Financial Aid Help

Starting this Wednesday, the counselors will be offering weekly college and financial aid help on Wednesdays during lunch. Students can drop by and ask questions, get their applications reviewed, etc. We will also be kicking off Workshop Wednesdays this week. Every Wednesday during 6th and 7th period, we will offer a workshop to help students with their college applications or career preparation. This week's topic is the UC Application. We will walk through the application, provide tips, and help them navigate elements they commonly struggle with. Since we are offering opportunities during both 6th and 7th period, students should attend after they are out of school. We would love your support in encouraging seniors to attend!

College & Career Rep Visits

Each year, we invite representatives from college and career technical schools around the country to visit and share information about their schools and programs. All grade levels are welcome to attend and we encourage you to explore the many different options available to you. This is a great way to connect with your schools of interest and speak directly with a representative!
