Primetime is coming!

Exciting news! The PrimeTime sign up sheet is in this week’s Wednesday Folder! Select up to 3 options by numbering them in order of first, second and third choice. We will do our best to get the students in their first choice but remember there are a lot of kids to accommodate and not everyone will get their first choice. However the spots are filled on a first come, first serve basis – so get your sheet turned into the office A.S.A.P. and no later than September 28!

Coffee Chat This Friday at 8am!


The first Coffee Chat of the year is Friday, September 22 at 8am. There will be a presentation about Title I and what it means for our campus, a discussion about our campus goals, a chance for general questions and answers, and of course, COFFEE! Stop on by and join the conversation.

 

Beautification Day is this Saturday! 9:00a.m.-2:00p.m.
