Mr. Abbott knows how to have fun!

The secondary principal joined in on the elementary field day activities. It appears he is ready to "slide" into summer! Picture captured by parent Melissa Piepmeier and forwarded by Mrs. Rhoades. Thank you for capturing a fun moment and sharing with us!

Before you leave this school year behind:

Students & Parents: Please, be sure you/your student does not have any unfulfilled obligations. It's not nagging, really. It is a gentle reminder to avoid unnecessary surprises.

Possible obligations: laptop insurance, bills carried over from last year, lunch bill, lost books or other borrowed items, FCCLA fees, club dues, athletic dues. Your understanding is appreciated.

Please note: Report cards and diplomas will be held until obligation responsibilities are taken care of. Kindly communicate with the school, as we will work with you!

Wishing everyone a great summer!

See you next year!
