A Message from the Principal

Welcome back to the Spring semester 2023. We are so looking forward to this semester with your students. For our 9th-11th graders they are getting closer to the next grade level. For our Seniors- well graduation is on their minds and of course the senior activities. As soon as the graduation date is announced- we will let you know.

We do have a few events coming up this week:

SBDM Committee- 4:45-5:30 January 10th

Open House- 4:30-6:30 January 10th

Tutoring/ Attendance for Credit- January 10th 4:30-6:30, January 12th 4:30-6:30

Most important-

If you receive a call that your student needs attendance for credit/tutoring please plan on them staying each Tuesday/ Thursday for these programs. Failure to complete attendance for credit will impact credits and graduation.

We look forward to a successful 2nd semester!

It is an honor and privilege to work with your students!!
