STUDENTS ARE REMINDED to PLEASE check your school email account daily.

REMEMBER: FRESHMEN & SOPHOMORES will not attend school on Tuesday, September 22, due to P-ACT and ACT testing being held for the upper classmen. (Sutter)
JUNIORS: Remember many of you still have a $10 Class Fundraising amount assigned to you. This is because your class didn’t do fundraising for Prom or Graduation last year. Those not paid will be added to the first semester Fines & Fees List. Covid 19 shut down last spring backed this collection off to this semester.
Homecoming Week is fast approaching (begins Monday, Sept 28th). Order your 2020 Homecoming T-Shirts or Sweatshirts by next Thursday, September 24.
