Leadership NEWS

From Colton’s Family:  Our family would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone involved in the March fundraising. Just when we are feeling that we have reached the pinnacle of appreciation, the school community, extends yet another offer of support to our family.  It truly seems that the people in our circle never stop giving.  Please know that the generosity and caring actions that have been directed our way have alleviated many of the stressors that are associated with our ever changing journey.   We are ever grateful for these gifts and although an email is hardly a sufficient thank you, we look forward to future opportunities that allow us to express our gratitude to all of you, in a much more personal way.  Please share this thank you with your students as well.



You Will Receive a PowerSchool Data Verification Sheet and Other Forms to Complete and Return to Your Teacher.  Today, all students will receive a package of forms from your Tuesday, Block 2 teacher.  Have your parent(s)/guardian(s) complete or correct these forms and return them on Thursday, April 20.  After they are completed, the forms must be returned to the teacher who handed them to you.  Ask the teacher to mark it down on a class list
