The Pizitz Post

For Students, Parents & Families - October 4, 2021

Help the Hills

We are excited to partner with Help the Hills in Vestavia Hills. Students from our high school will be here to visit with our eighth grade students this Thursday, October 7th to discuss their middle and high school experience. Specifically, they will address concerns and warnings regarding bullying, social media, and substance use. We look forward to hearing from the student perspective. If you want to learn more about Help the Hills, check out their website here. Hearing from other students can be a powerful way to help our students understand the significance of their actions.

Students and Staff, Show your school spirit and Round up the Rockets on Thursday! Wear your western gear to the pep-rally.
