We have a new Receptionist!
Attention all High schoolers. If you are interested in being part of the high school Whiz Quiz team, please see Mrs. Giddens in room 107 or come to practices Wednesdays after school in room 107. Practices run from 3:45 to 4:45 and our first match will take place on January 13.
With that said...it is time to order this year's book. It is simple to order by following the link below. There you will have the options to personalize your book. Senior families can also purchase and design a special announcement for their graduate. For questions about this year's book, please contact Mr. Robbie Roberts at email@example.com.
The Reindeer Games are Back! **UPDATED**
We are so excited to bring back the Reindeer Games during last period on December 17th. All students are welcome to dress up in their festive holiday apparel on this day.
This is a Finals make up day so we want to provide a fun opportunity for the kids before we leave for Winter Break. Student Council is hosting a dodgeball tournament at the Reindeer Games. There will be no charge for students or for teams. Our student council is creating this event simply as a gift of fun for our students and want everyone to enjoy - for free.
Middle school students will also be hosting a fun activity on December 17th as well! This event will be free of charge! All we ask is that we do not have any early dismissals as there will not be any easy way to pull students from the gymnasium during these reindeer games.
Winter Break is Coming...
If you have any questions about the schedule, please contact the school at 817-815-7100. We are asking for no early dismissals on this day. This traditionally has been an extremely high volume day for early dismissals and the wait time for families can be unusually long. Additionally, students will be engaging in activities that will make it difficult to usher them to the office in a timely manner.
Senior Families: FAFSA/TASFA
Senior Parents: The FAFSA/TASFA forms for the 2022-2023 school year are open! These forms are extremely important as they qualify your student for financial aid, and it is now a graduation requirement from the state. The priority deadline to complete the application is January 15th, so it is important that you and your student work on this ASAP!
