News and Notes

Happy Friday Wildcats!
Another great week in the books! With school settling in, you can truly feel the sense of community in the building! It was great being able to welcome so many families to Curriculum Night this week to engage with our staff as well as learn more about the extra-curricular opportunities for student engagement! Our goal is always to connect students and have them commit to the total Wildcat Experience. With that, we are seeing record numbers this year which is promising and allows for connectivity!


While it can be hard to capture the all-encompassing mission for high school students in one session, our wonderful counseling staff has prepared videos to share with our stakeholders outlining the expectations of high school, the information you are looking for and the keys to success. Check out the videos below to stay informed:



Our goal is to keep you informed, in the know and allow you to navigate high school successfully! We are focused on the commitment to our students with the ultimate goal of graduation and post-secondary success!


With a newsletter loaded with information, I encourage you to close-read the upcoming dates, various activities to connect and general items to keep you in the know!


Enjoy the weekend ahead!
