Here is your quote from the SGA in celebration of MLK Week of Service –

“If you have a choice of being right and being kind chose kind.” ~Dr. Wayne Dyer


Health Classes

Marking Period 2 Ends 1/25/19

Today is the last day of Marking Period 2.

Students if you need to complete work, please see your teachers during Viking Time or get a pass to get help during lunch.


Media Center

Students, please return any overdue books to the Media Center as soon as possible.


Student Attendance

  • Daily attendance is necessary for a student to be successful at school. In addition, patterns of regular attendance and on-time arrival established now will help students throughout their education and their employment years.

  • If a student’s absence or tardy is excused, they should bring a note from a parent or guardian excusing them. Failure to bring a note within three days will automatically be considered unexcused.

  • Student’s attendance and tardies are monitored by the school. Beginning Marking Period 3 on January 29, 2019, students will be receiving consequences after three tardies to school.


Women’s Choir

Women’s choir is canceled until April due to the preparation for the upcoming choral festival. It will start again on April 2.
