A word from your Gator Counselor, Mrs. Stockdell......

This is a friendly reminder that next week, May 23rd, is registration for students taking a course through VirtualSC. Be sure to register May 23rd as slots fill up quickly.

Upcoming Assessments


Budget Project is due Wednesday, May 23rd. Please ask your child about this! They have been budgeting their life after college and working on paying bills and buying groceries! You want to see this!!! The final presentation will count as a test grade. We have spent over a week of class time on this project, so no late work will be accepted.


EOC is Tuesday, May 22nd. Students should get a good night's sleep, eat breakfast, and bring their calculator (if they have the TI-84 graphing one). We will provide calculators for those who need one! We will also start collecting textbooks on Wednesday of next week. We are almost there! The Algebra teachers would like to wish our kids the best of luck on this exam!!!
