Principal's Weekly Updates
Welcome back from February break. I hope that you were able to spend some down time in a warmer and sunnier spot.
A reminder that this Friday is the Winter Ball, which begins at 6:00 PM and lasts until 11:00 PM. An e-mail went out previously to Junior and Freshman parents to ask about providing food for the event. If you are able to help out, please contact either David Emerson at firstname.lastname@example.org or Quintin Burks at email@example.com or fill in your information on the online form below. .
