Student Government and Visual and Performing Arts Department have prepared an assembly of remembrance for our students.

Assemblies will occur in period 2 in the North Gym.  The adjusted bell schedule is below.  Staff and Students who are on adjusted schedules (e.g.part-time, academies, ACE-IT) should attend whichever assembly aligns with their arrival at school; lunch will be delayed to accommodate both assemblies.

Donations for the Poppy Campaign will be collected in classrooms prior to students moving to the gym.  Your cash contributions will be gratefully accepted.
