MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL MANDATORY SOCIAL MEDIA PRESENTATION

Our world is becoming more technologically advanced with each passing day. While this is a??tremendous blessing, at times it also produces challenges for our students. For this reason, we are??having a mandatory meeting for all of our middle and high school students and their parents. All of??these meetings will take place in our auditorium at 7pm on the following dates: August 24, August 31,??and September 1. Students and parents are required to attend one of the meetings and will have to sign??in to verify their attendance. Students who do not attend one of the meetings will not be allowed to??attend classes until a meeting with an administrator takes place.

SHARK STORE

The Shark Store will be open on July 25 from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm and July 26 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.??This is the same time that our uniform company will be selling school uniforms, so this is a great time??for our parents to purchase physical education uniforms for middle and high school students.
