When student are not taking their final, they will be working on and completing their Personal Floatation Device (PFD) major grade project.


Information packets went home with ALL students today!  This trip sells out quickly!  Please READ the information packet CAREFULLY as there is A LOT involved.  Students need to be aware that they will be completing their missed work while on the trip.  Also, if you are a person that NEEDS constant access to your cellphone, then this is not the trip for you!


Per the Charger Buzz post from Mrs. Graves on Sunday, NO Incompletes will be recorded for any student for the 6th grading cycle.  ALL outstanding assignments MUST be turned in NO LATER THAN TUESDAY, MAY 22nd at 3:30pm!!  Teachers have a VERY short turnaround time to grade those assignments before our gradebooks close in preparation for Report Cards.  We thank you in advance for your assistance!
