We are an inclusive learning community with a tradition of inspiring, supporting, and collaborating with students 
as they prepare to be engaged citizens in their pursuit of continuous success.

  • Positive Behavior & Celebrations: We want to first congratulate our Girls’ Golf Team who earned a 2nd place finish in the 5A State Tournament last week!  Track and field athletes are preparing for their state tournament this week, and lacrosse, soccer, tennis, and softball are gearing up for their playoff runs as well.  We remind everyone about our choir and instrumental concerts this week and invite all to attend. Congratulations, also on our woodworking whizzes who demonstrated their prowess at the state-wide woodworking show this past weekend.

Tickets are $35 each and include entry to the aquarium, the dinner, and the dance. Note that tickets are pre-purchase ONLY.  For questions, see Shaley Louder.
