Message from Mr. McDermott

Hi Wildcat Families,

We have finished strong in quarter 1 and want to remind students to be sure to continue their successes moving into quarter 2. If your student needs support, please remind them that we offer tutoring on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2-3 in our media center.

Also, we appreciate our parents who are moving forward, as far as they can, in the car drop off line as it is helping ensure we have all students make it to first period on time. We appreciate your consideration of other families and students. If everyone is courteous and follows the suggested signage, the line will move quicker.

I hope you all have a great rest of the week and enjoy the cooler temperatures coming our way.
