  • It was slightly scary as I was typing the date for this edition of the weekly forecast...November 4....Where does the time go? Maybe it's just me. Hope that you all had a good weekend. I have a SCASA board meeting scheduled for 12:30 Monday. Please see Mrs. Poore should you need an administrator.

  • I will be out of the building for principal meetings beginning at 1:00. See Mrs. Poore should you need assistance from an administrator.


  • Tag of Honor - We are looking forward to our first program of the year and celebrating students and their successes. Just a couple of reminders and info for our new staff. Spirit day will not be observed this Friday...professional dress is the expectation given the occasion. Finally just a reminder to utilize parking in the rear of our campus to accommodate our visitors.

Birthday Wishes!
