The first quarter ends next week Friday!

The high school prep is doing something different for our parent/teacher conferences this year. Instead of having individual times, we will have a Report Card Pick-up Night, where all the teachers will be available to talk with you if you have any questions. You will pick up your child's report card from their homeroom teacher and then you are free to speak with any of the teachers if you have questions about your child's grades or behavior. If there are no concerns on either end, you are free to leave after you have picked up their report card. If you do not make it that evening, you will need to set up a time to meet with Mr. Green to pick up their report card.

Report Card Pick-up Night will be on Wednesday, November 7th.  We will be available from 3:30-4:30 and from 6:00-7:30. You can come whenever it is convenient for you.

  • Boys & Girls VB Games vs. Grace on Monday; 4:30, 5:30, & 6:30
