Fall is in the air!

Another great week of school is in the books. Students are digging into the curriculum and the building is buzzing with excitement about our teams, clubs, bands, and more! If your student wants to get involved, have them speak to a teacher, advisor, counselor, or chat with me on the street each morning. Please read the latest edition of the Raider Times here.

new building update

I would like to continually update families regarding the new building and the temporary space at Moxley Field. Plans are continuing on time and the School Building Committee continues to meet and plan for the future. Please find the SBC's website here as it is a great resource to keep your finger on the pulse of these exciting new projects.

Here is a link to the latest presentation

back-to-school night

Our back to school night will take place on Thursday, September 29th, from 6:00pm-8:00pm. The night will include families following their student's schedule, giving them a chance to meet their student's teachers. The night is an exciting opportunity to get to know your student's teachers but will not include a chance to sit and meet about your student's individual needs. Teachers are happy to discuss your student's needs, individually, by emailing to schedule an appointment.

Families will be following their student's schedule according to the schedule below. Please ask your student to share a screenshot of their schedule so you know which classes they have. We will have staff helping you navigate the building and will have printed schedules for anyone that doesn't have access to an electronic version of their student's schedule.

soccer night in belmont

I wanted to send a special thank you to all the good people from Belmont that welcomed our soccer teams to Soccer Night in Belmont. With over 2500 people in attendance, it was a very special occasion for our student athletes and community, at large. Take a look at the Globe's coverage of the event here.
