Thank You To All Who Serve

This week marks the day the Armistice was signed ending WWI at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month. November 11th has since expanded to honor all those who serve or who have served in our armed forces. As the daughter of two Veterans, a daughter-in-law of one, and wife of another, I feel deeply the honor and sacrifice of our Veterans who have served our country. Please take a moment to reflect upon that service and, if you have the opportunity and desire, thank a veteran.

Students may register for their college classes beginning November 10th. Check your student portal for the exact date and time of your registration. Remember, you must have an approved DE & MOU before you can register. If you haven't already, please email Mrs. McIntosh and Dr. Oplustic with the classes you would like to take.

Enjoy your four day week, Phoenix families!
