What a great play!

A big thank you to Mr. Visser and the Speech and Drama students for their hard work on You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. We had a great turnout at last night's performance, and it was well worth getting out in the cold! We're all looking forward to future productions! (Photo Credit: Mrs. Connie Wyrick)

No archery practice on Tuesday, November 22!

Counselor's Update

On Tuesday, the 8th graders had the opportunity to go to Eldon's Career Center and explore their 12 career programs, ranging from business to building trades to computer sciences. Students were able to experience some hands-on activities in each program and they ended their trip with a little snowball fight upon returning to school. What a fun day!

No, that's not snow--that's our beautiful new gym roof in the picture below! Rudy's Roofing did a wonderful job in record time, just in time for winter weather.
