2016-2017 Registration

It's hard to believe that we have completed the 3rd quarter of this school year! We have so much to do in so little time. The counselors have been in the classrooms registering students for their courses so if you have questions about their course selections, be sure to check with your student.



FRESHMAN MENTORS

The freshman mentors spent their time in homeroom during the month of homeroom discussing the consequences of alcohol, tobacco and drug abuse. Activities included: Bingo that addressed the consequences of smoking, the fatal vision goggles that addressed the consequences of drinking alcohol, and the "wheel of misfortune" that discussed the consequences of any and all of the above. During the final homeroom in February students watched a video about the deadly consequences of using designer drugs.



SADD (students against destructive decisions)

During the month of April, SADD plans to sponsor the Grim Reaper Day at the High School. This activity is an effort to remind teens to steer clear of drugs and alcohol especially when behind the wheel of a vehicle. The important message is that we are all connected. Please don’t let death from alcohol or other destructive decisions break this chain of life.
