As a reminder, our daytime activities are for students only. Parents will not be able to attend the events during the school day. We thank you in advance for your cooperation. If students leave campus during the school day, they are able to return to campus for the activities. We hope that they will participate as this is going to be a great week!

Each day we will be reporting to RANCH first so that we can do our Spirit Counts and have our parades. The bell schedules are posted on Twitter and our website. Please review them so that you are aware of what time you should be where you need to be.
