Please complete your slide by Dec 19. This is an important document that will help us recognize and get to know each other!

Please include a professional picture of yourself (we need faces!) as well as any customization. Illustrations/avatars (of yourself) are fine as long as we can tell it’s you.

For the time being, this list will remain alphabetical, and we will modify in the future.

Proclomation 2015

It is very confusing. It is very frustrating.

The Advocacy Committee is working with Missey and discussing all possible solutions. Please make sure your voice is heard, as soon as possible.

Faculty Art Show, February 2015

Get motivated!

We want your artwork. YES, YOU.

We are looking forward to a big turnout, as we need about 40 pieces!

Please keep in mind that these works will be viewed by all ages and need to be school appropriate.

We can accommodate 3D art as well.

Please have your work ready by to be displayed by Jan. 30, 2015.
