Students will be notified in school that they have qualified for an Academic Awards Medal, and can pick it up from the guidance office.

Clubs and Organizations

Extra-curricular activities, clubs, and fine arts organizations extend far beyond the classroom and give you an opportunity to be involved in your school and to develop your special talents.

Students in all grade levels will be invited to sign up for Hawks Hang Outs early in the school year. The meeting dates for the 2017-18 school year are available in the school office, the schedules are different for several of the clubs, based on seasons and field trips.
