For everyone that is waiting on last year's yearbook - we are expecting them in January - finally. I am so sorry for the extreme delay. Moving forward, the plan for yearbooks is to have them delivered before school is out for that school year.

With that 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

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.

High School

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

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...

I know the weather makes it seem that winter may never arrive, but to assist you with planning your winter break plans, please know that our last day of school before break is Friday, December 17th. This is a full day. Students will return on Wednesday, January 5th.

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.

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!
