Celebrating Our Counselors!

We are so fortunate to have these ladies working with our students. They listen, guide, and counsel our students daily. But, what I see them do every day is FIGHT for our kids. Thank you, Liz Freeman, Donna Lincoln, and Erica Chupp for always putting our kids first. 💜💛💜

HAVE YOUR ORDERED A YEARBOOK? HERE'S YOUR LAST CHANCE!

Due to the high call volume of parents missing the final deadline for yearbook orders we have gotten our publisher to agree to open up their online ordering site. So, starting tomorrow until Friday, February 21st, parents will have the opportunity to order a yearbook, but it is the yearbook only. Personalization and other add-ons are no longer available. Don’t delay, this will be the only time to secure a yearbook for this year.
