GENERAL INFORMATION:

Yearbook sales are in full effect!  If you have not pre-ordered a 2019-2020 yearbook, you will definitely want to do so soon.  Yearbooks can be purchased in the Commons at the book store and online for $45 if prepaid by March 6.  After the 6th, the cost increases to $55 and the extra yearbooks are very limited.  You don't want to miss out on this memory keepsake! Reminder, today is the last day to get the lower price, so act quickly!   

Attention all bilingual students! Do you speak Spanish, French, Arabic, or Chinese? Do you want to earn free college credits? If so, the Seal of Biliteracy is for you! We will start taking the tests to qualify for the Seal after spring break. If you already talked to Mrs. Erickson this fall, you don't need to sign up again; she will be in touch after spring break to set up a time to take the test. If you have not previously signed up, see Mrs. Erickson in room 261W for more information.
