    November 2017
    We are rapidly approaching November 9th, which marks the end of quarter one. I hope that you have had the opportunity to connect with all of your child's teachers.  It's not too late for your child to catch up on work and to improve his or her first quarter grade. Feel free to reach out to your child's school counselor for assistance.  
    Fall sports are coming to a close and I want to thank all of our athletes who participated in our extracurricular activities.  I want to wish and congratulate our seniors who completed their last fall season. We thank you for your contribution to our school! 

    Continue to check our website for other important information, upcoming events, and accolades.
