  • Time for the Holiday Shop

    The School Store could use your help in the Holiday Shop!

    Thanks to the Santa’s Elves that volunteered in the Student Store to setting up the 2019 Holiday Store, it is ready for our students on Monday, December 2nd, when they return to school.

    We are expecting a large turnout of students and we want to make sure they have an awesome shopping experience. To help this we are asking for 5 daily volunteers & allowing only 10 students access at a time & 5 minutes to make their purchase/s … this limitation will also help volunteers answer an questions as well as keeping a watchful eye on the merchandise.

    Understanding this is a crazy busy time of year any day you can spare to volunteer would be greatly appreciated. Many opportunities are still available and please use the Sign Up Genius so we can ensure daily coverage.

    Thank you all for what you do !

  • Jr. Bucs Track & Field Meeting

  • Reality U is Coming!!

    Reality U will be rolling around again Wednesday, Dec. 18th! If you haven’t been a part of Reality U before, it’s a VERY cool program that our counselor hosts for our 8th graders. It’s an incredible activity for 8th graders to learn financial literacy & the correlation between fiscal well-being & academic achievement.  It’s a fun learning experience for the kids & a lot of fun for the volunteers too.

    I know the holiday schedule fills up fast, so I went ahead & set up the Sign Ups. You don’t have to be an 8th grade parent to help out. Join us if you can! 🙂
