High School Spring 2015

It's almost summer! Here's the latest news from the district as we finish out 2014-15 and head into a great 2015-16!


The best of luck to those of you retiring or leaving our math team. Cindy Jones (RHS), Deb Witherspoon (WMS), Mark Demianovich (Shannon), and Alisha Gabbard (RHHS) - you will all be missed!


If you have any questions, as always, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Semester Exams for Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, pre-Calculus and MMA will be activated by Tuesday May 12 and will be available only through your department chair!

Please do not forward the exams electronically. Thanks to all who helped!

We get to create them again next year!
