We do not have many left to sell, so it's best to make your purchase now and guarantee a book for your student. Every year we sell out and every year we have disappointed students who did not get a yearbook.

Yearbook purchases can be made online at the following link: http://ybstore.friesens.com/stores/757611

This has been a year of growth for many of our students. We continue to refer our students who are struggling emotionally to outside therapists, on a daily basis. If you have a concern about your student’s mental health, please contact their counselor. Having a trusted adult on campus for our students has never been more crucial. Our role as a counselor is to support your student with their academic, personal/social, and college and career goals.
