Morning Call!

Every morning our amazing school band plays our morning call! This year our song was written by our very own Mr. Graziani, based on the famous quote by Mark Twain. Below are the lyrics for this amazing song and we would love for you to join us in singing during first period.


It’s Never Wrong To Do the Right Thing


It’s Never Wrong

to do the right thing


And every morning

we’re gonna sing.


With love, don’t you know,

You’re gonna reap just what you sow*.


It’s Never Wrong

to do the right thing


*You reap what you sow is a proverb that says future consequences are inevitably shaped by

present actions.

Lost and Found

Did you lose something? Check the lost and found first. Lost and found is located right inside the doors of the 1000 building right by the tripidome.
