THANKS TO OUR COUNSELORS!!!!

As we celebrate Counselor's Week, let's take a moment to thank our counselors for the amazing work that they do on our campus. Our counselors embody the ideals of being relationship driven and making sure every kid enters with a promise & exits with a purpose. We appreciate you and all of the work that you do to support our students, staff, and campus. Thank you, counselors!

Valentines Day Deliveries

Please no Valentines Day deliveries to school. We are selling candy and flower grams at school. We appreciate your cooperation!

COUNSELORS CORNER

The counselors have concluded their visits to the classrooms to talk with students about course selection. All student’s selections have been entered into skyward. At the end of February, each student will come home with a copy of their course requests. This is a time for parents to review those requests, make sure it reflects exactly what students signed up for, and to make any necessary changes. There will be a “Course Change Form” students can pick up in any grade level office that will need to be filled out and signed by both students and parents. Changes can be made until May 24th. All current 8th grade students must also continue to make changes for next year through the 8th grade office. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Pennies for Patients


Pennies for Patients is a fundraiser that will run from February 4th to the 28th. Pennies for patients is for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society which helps people with cancer. Our school hero is 8th grader, Logan Magnus. We will collect any form of money (coins or dollar bills) at each grade level AP office. We will have prizes based on how much money the school raises, and the grade level with the most money at the end of the contest will see their principal get pied in the face.
