January 15, 2021


We made it through another week of school. I hope that everyone was able to get acquainted with the new sync times from teachers. Lunch went off without a hitch, and it was great to see students together, socially distanced. In observance of Martin Luther King Junior Day, Monday, January 18, is a holiday for students and staff.


I want to give a big shout out to our Cheerleaders who placed 13th in the state at their competition. That’s better than we have ever done. Congratulations to the team and coaches.


See below for important announcements.



PSAT Testing
