Principal's Corner

June 1st - June 5th


Well - this is our last full week of school. It sounds weird saying that, especially as many students are "finished" with their school work at this point. If students are not quite yet finished and still have some "Incompletes" in certain classes, remember that this Friday is the last day that students can turn in work to move "Incompletes" to "Passing" marks.

ChromeBook Check-In

This week, we will be taking ChromeBooks back! Please swing by the school between 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., Wednesday - Friday. We will also be accepting back any textbooks, library books, and band instruments this week.


We just learned from our distributor, Josten's, that many deliveries around the country have been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Initially, they were scheduled to be delivered this week; however, they have said that all shipments will be delayed at least 7 - 10 business days. We apologize for the delay in delivery, and we will let you know as soon as possible when we have a date for delivery.

Trojan Follies

We are SO excited to release our Trojan Follies Virtual Event. We should be releasing that video on Friday this week!

Awards Ceremonies

Videos for this year's awards ceremonies (6th and 7th) will be released next Wednesday, June 10th, at 12:00 p.m.

8th Grade Moving On Ceremony

We have combined our 8th grade awards ceremony and our Moving On Ceremony into one video. We will release that video ceremony next WEdnesday, June 10th at 12:00 p.m.

Drive-by Parade

We would love to see your faces one more time before we head into the summer! Our Drive-by Parade will happen next Wednesday, June 10th, from 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. If you are able to make that work, it would be so fun to see you drive by in the South parking lot and say "hi"! We hope you can make it!

We are so excited to announce our second virtual assembly! Our leadership students did a great job putting this together, and kudos to all the staff that participated in "Masked Singer"! Check it out below.

Have an awesome week, and please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
