September 21st our Senior Class spent the day at WNCC at the MultiCultural Youth Leadership Conference.
Minatare Spanish Class put together this amazing board to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month! Such amazing work by an amazing group of Students and Staff!
The special education department (district) decided to create the "Sparkle" celebration/award as a way to thank staff for all they do to support special education students in their learning. We know it is not always easy and that it takes extra time and effort to provide the accommodations and modifications that many of the students need to access their education. Today there is a small table of treats set up in the lounge to celebrate ALL that our Staff does not just for special education students, but all students. We chose two people to highlight for August and September because of the extra effort and their willingness to let us join their classes for multiple periods a day. This Months Staff Highlights are Tamara Simmons & Steve Foster
