For Avenger Students and Families - February 16, 2023
Message from Mr. Mercer
We hope that your students have had a great start to the second semester. We have been busy planning for the 2023-24 school year. Our students had the opportunity to make elective course requests for next school year at the end of last month. Make sure to check your course requests for next year in Parent Portal March 3-7.
In March, many of our CTSOs will compete at their state level conferences. We look forward to their many successes. We are very proud of our Mock Trial students who won 1st place in their regional competition. Thank you for your support of our student organizations!
We are also proud to have received the honor today of being recognized as an AP Honor School again. We love seeing the dedication our students have to their classes and love to celebrate their hard work!
Have an Amazing Avenger (long) Weekend!
