School News and Happenings

LAST CALL for Shirt Sizes!

Advisory is the back bone to creating and maintaining a sense of community in our school. At the start of the year students are assigned a homeroom, or advisor. During advisory, students learn to work together, communicate, and problem solve as a team. This year we will be ordering t-shirts for each student to represent their advisory team from Whitt's in China. Please complete the attached form indicating the appropriate size for your student. T-shirts are cotton, Gildan brand shirts. We appreciate your help getting the most accurate shirt for your student. :)

School Picture Day is Monday, October 2nd. Use THIS link to pre-order today on mylifetouch.com with your Picture Day ID: EVTDXTHNG.
