Ms. RobinsonOur theme of “Come Together” is in full swing and we are certainly seeing some things come together in our classrooms and with our extracurricular activities.  Our College and Career Center has been a bustling place with many juniors and seniors working on scholarship, college, and financial aid applications.  Students are beginning to receive awards and move on to the next rounds for larger scholarships.  Families and students – Ms. Robinson is ready to support you!  Stop in and see her so that we can help get your post high school plans in motion. 

DECA Students at the DECA Leadership Conference in BellevueOur CTE (Career and Technical Education) classes have been hard at work bringing our students together to have experiences that provide an opportunity to learn more about potential careers. Students in our DECA program participated in the fall DECA Leadership Conference in Bellevue.  They received very positive feedback and are getting ready to compete later in the school year.

Conferences are this month as well.  Conferences will be in person!  We are excited to welcome our families back and to speak with you and your student(s) about academics, attendance, and goals for the future. Our goal is to have a conference for every student in the month of November.  If the conference window of November 16-18 does not work, please reach out so that we can find a time to meet with you.
