Please join us for Curriculum Night on Wednesday, August 29. This event is an opportunity for you to follow your student's schedule and meet all of their teachers. We will run a condensed version of our bell schedule to allow for you to hear from each teacher. Each teacher will be presenting a short presentation that will provide you with an overview of who they are, a little about their course and how the rest of the year will flow.
Picture Day This Friday
LifeTouch Photography will be on campus on Friday A,ugust 31st to take all of our 2018-2019 student and staff pictures.
For your convenience LifeTouch allows online ordering via the information on the attached flyer. Visit www.mylifetouch.com and enter our picture day ID: 0Q530811XT. We utilized this online service last year and I highly recommend it as the easiest way to handle the ordering process.

Please help your students dress appropriately for pictures on Friday.
