FROM TRASH TO TREASURES - STUDENT ORNAMENTS

The excess of damanged limbs and blue tarps in our community were the inspiration for these beauties. Each student made an ornament that is proudly hanging in our halls. Taking trash and creating treasures reminds us to see the great potential around us. All students will be taking their ornaments home this Thursday, December 17th.


*Stay tuned! Our BETA club is working on extra ornaments to sell to our school family and community. These will be available to purchase soon. Proceeds will go towards the purchase of new trees to replace those damaged on our campus and in our community.*

EXTRA SPIRIT ITEMS AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE

We have extra spirit items available to purchase. These sales are ONLINE ONLY. Items include short and long class sleeve t-shirts, hats, shorts, lanyards, earrings, socks and more.


Be sure to check out the holiday ornaments that we also have in stock. These are great commemorative pieces for families to enjoy.
