10th Grade Career Awareness Trip - This Wednesday

Logistics for 10th Grade Career Awareness trip here!

Scheduling Update

We have received some feedback from teachers that some of the student class-switches have created unbalanced classes. We will work to balance these classes out the best we can this week. Please let Nichalous and Carol know any impact on your classes. Elective class lists should be confirmed by this Friday. We will be asking you to follow up with advisees this week who still have not chosen their elective classes. Thanks for your patience!
