School Pictures

Wear your best on Friday for school pictures through your science classes. These will be the replacement pictures for your PRIDE cards.

Update from the Counselors

Mrs. Whittle and Ms. Zanotelli led an 8th-grade guidance lesson on Friday, September 8th through students’ science classes. Students used OK Career Guide to take a Career Interests Assessment as well as a Skills Confidence Assessment. After taking the assessment, students received two top 5 career pathways- based on their interests as well as what they think they’re good at. The goal is for students to be able to identify their interests, likes, and dislikes as well as their abilities, strengths, skills, and talents- all as they reflect on possible future career goals.

PRIDE Card Reminder

Just a reminder that PRIDE cards must be visible around your necks. Hat day was a great success and there were a lot of creative hats. If you would like to be on the student team that decides different theme days for PRIDE cards, sign up for the student design team! google form.

Homework Helpers

Homework helpers will begin on September 12 in the library from 3:45 - 5:00. Students will need to remain the entire time in the library and bring assignments to work on.
