Save the Date! Winter Showcase
Please save the date and be sure to attend our Winter Showcase! Since our school is on a block schedule and students complete year long classes in one semester, we have two Showcase events that are similar to an Open House. In December, we hold our Winter Showcase, and in May we will have our Spring Showcase and Community Fair.
During our Winter Showcase, students will get to showcase the hard work and projects they have been working on this semester. Each class has a theme and parents will get to walk around the campus to visit all of the exciting displays.
During the Winter Showcase, the PTSA is also hosting a Silent Auction Fundraiser! The Silent Auction will be held in the High Media Room. Please be sure to stop by and bid on a couple of great gifts!
