Conference Dinner a Success!

Thank you to Danielle Whitcomb, Conference Dinner Chair, and all those who donated waters and sweet treats for our teachers during the Teacher Conference sessions. It was much appreciated!


Plan on attending our next PTO meeting!

Thursday, Feb 23rd @ 8:30am
Carsonie’s – 1725 W Lane Ave.

Our topic will focus on the Senior Capstone project. Never heard of Capstone?  Confused about Capstone? Have input on what Capstone should look like?  Now is the time!!  As Andrew said in his recent memo, “The Senior Capstone project is an important part of our school’s history and long-standing commitment to personalized learning. We are proud to provide our students an opportunity to tailor a project to their own interests and passions while simultaneously developing the skills critical to success in college and career.”

Andrew Theado will update us on the latest thinking and listen to our input.  Don’t have a junior?  Come and see what your student(s)’ future holds! 

If you are a parent in the class of 2018 and are unable to attend this meeting, be sure to give your input to Andrew Theado using this link.
