Greetings, Spartan Families!
Seniors- April 16th is your Senior Panoramic photo! Be here for that important day!!!
On April 28th, juniors will be taking the ACT test in the morning. All seniors in jeopardy of not having 92% attendance will be invited to attend that day for four hours (same duration as the test), and will use room 34 for study hall time.

-Admininstration will talk about how to be a Spartan (daily expectations)
-Members of the Center for Communication Technology Magnet (CCTM) will be there to talk about the program
Incoming students will get schedules, get a general overview of their upcoming life as Spartans! There will also be an opportunity to sign up for 9th grade academy.The TJ Paint Bucket Challenge is underway and making gains, but we’re still hoping for many donations from families!
