Report cards went home with your child today. If you didn’t receive one, please feel free to email me at Next week is going to be a busy week! We have PSAT on Wednesday and Senior Night on Thursday. Please see below for details on both.



On October 10, 2018, 9th Grade AVID students and 10th and 11th grade students will be taking the PSAT. These students need to be in their assigned testing room by 7:35 and must bring a photo ID. Calculators will be issued to 11th grade students. All 10th grade students should bring their own calculator if they wish to use it on the test. There will be a late bus run for those Freshman and Seniors who are not testing. Students should be at their bus stops by 9:15 and ALL students will report to campus at 10 am and go to their assigned rooms. No students will be traveling to the CTC on Wednesday. Those classes will meet on campus. Dual credit classes will continue at their normal time for seniors only. See below for the schedule for the day.
