A Message From Mrs. Venghaus

Bear Branch Family,

Another great week and April is here! If your 7th grader did not turn in their course selection sheet today to their English teacher, please be sure they bring these on Monday. I hope everyone enjoys their three-day weekend.

Proud to be your student's principal,
