8th Grade Dinner Dance

We are happy to announce that we will be having an 8th Grade Dinner Dance this year. It is scheduled for Friday, June 11, from 6-10 pm and will be taking place at the Junior High School. Tickets are on sale now for in person and virtual students for $10 and can be purchased from Mrs. Maleski ( in room A-206 or Mrs. Laurence ( in the gym. Students will be asked to wear comfortable, casual, semi-formal attire.

Just a reminder in order for a student to attend extra-curricular activities they must be in Good Standing. Under this status, the student can enjoy many privileges such as student parking, attendance at school dances and other school sponsored activities.

A student can lose his/her “Good Standing” status for up to 30 days, and forfeit their opportunity to participate in these activities/privileges if they do not meet the following criteria in their academics, attendance, and behavior:

Academics - The student has not earned two “F”’s in the previous marking period.

Attendance - The student does not have excessive absences (NC) in any of their classes.

Behavior - The student has not earned 4 or more discipline points in the previous marking period. Certain disciplinary infractions result in an immediate 30-day loss of Good Standing. Students can refer to the discipline section of the handbook for more information.

A student’s standing will be reviewed each marking period. Students have the right to appeal their good standing status in writing. Administration reserves the right to restore/remove a student from Good Standing.
