If you have come through the drive in front of the school this week, I am sure you noticed our new drive through and drop-off area. This area is intended for dropping off and picking up people. There is no longer any parking available up near the school building, other than the designated handicap parking.
Vehicles must be attended in this area. Anyone needing to come inside the building should park in the parking lot south of the school building.
If you plan to drop off or pick up someone, we recommend using the County P entrance.
Please understand we have designed this to ensure everyone's safety and accessibility.

“Your greatness is measured by your kindness; your education and intellect by your modesty; your ignorance is betrayed by your suspicions and prejudices, and your real caliber is measured by the consideration and tolerance you have for others.” - William J.H. Boetcker
This inspirational quote is a focal point for the beginning of a random acts of kindness kickoff. A group of creative eighth graders has been diligently working on developing fun inspirational ways to promote kindness throughout the whole middle school. The ultimate goal is that their initiative spreads throughout the entire school.
From The Athletic Director's Office
Our future is looking promising in winter sports! Middle School boy's basketball has begun and Middle school girls will begin in January. High school athletics will begin mid November, and there are some changes there that you can look forward to. Probably the most notable change will be in basketball. There will no longer be the traditional four quarters. Basketball will now be timed in halves. The junior varsity will be two 16 minute halves and the varsity two 18 minute halves. Wrestling looks to be filling more weight classes with increased participation as well as sporting a new falcon uniform. Cheer and dance numbers look to be as high as they have been in some time and based on what I saw from them this fall I can't wait to see what they bring for winter.
Changes and opportunities, it's all about what we make of them.
One of my favorite breakfasts here at school is a simple, healthy meal you can make at home. It is the fruit and yogurt parfait.
6 oz low-fat vanilla yogurt
1/2 - 1/4 cup frozen berries, thawed, or fresh fruit of your choice (there are so many options to choose from).
1/8 cup granola cereal
Scoop yogurt into a bowl. Add fruit and top with granola.
It's as easy as that! I have even added canned peaches and dried fruit in the past. Use whatever you have on hand. This is a very healthy recipe that incorporates low-fat dairy, fruit and grains into one fast and easy dish.
