As our students settle into their Junior year and second half of High School, we are here for you.  Please watch this site for important reminders and information, upcoming events, key dates, and scheduled visits from college representatives. We also encourage you to explore Parents' University - a great place to get insight on various issues that may affect your student and find parent perspectives on unanswered questions that you may have.
Feel free to email us with questions and suggestions. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming Junior class coffee, event or program.
