Hey Panthers,

The I Spy game continues!! As you casually walk through the school use the following clues to help you find a surprise....

"I spy something black, something tough, something heroic."

Once you find the ticket you will have to bring 2 friends with you to my office to complete a task. You and your friends will receive a free t-shirt. Good luck! Have a great week and if you need anything, please stop by my office.

Felisha Jones

Assistant Principal


"I SPY " Winners last week: Reid Jaska, Michael Collins & Mike Case!

Each of these guys won a t-shirt for finding the clues around the building.

Prizes are still out there for two more groups.

Ready, Set, Go!

When a student is tardy - no matter the reason - they will be required to go to the office, receiving a tardy slip. The student will be required to hand the tardy slip to the teacher when they arrive back to class. Three tardies equal one unexcused absence.
