HERE IS A RECAP: Monday was tile painting, Tuesday was cookie decorating, Wednesday we made bracelets, Thursday the therapy puppies were on campus, and Friday was slime making.

That's not all! Our ASB decorated the campus in a Holiday theme to help our students DE-stress and celebrate! Good luck with finals Mustangs! You got this!
Home for the Holidays Concert was a Hit!
The annual Home for the Holidays Concert was held on Thursday, December 12th, in the Performing Arts Center with a SPECIAL GUEST FROM THE NORTH POLE (aka Buddy Clements as Santa Claus!) What a great night as the concert featured ALL 250 students in our instrumental music program!
