Door Decorating Contest

I can’t wait to see the decorated doors this year!  It makes everything seem very festive! The students will love it!  Let’s get started!!! The paper is in the library! Please see the rules and categories that will be awarded.  

Semester House Points Competition

The contest is very close!  December events will determine the winner!  This has been such a fun semester with the competition we have going on.  Your doors, spirit week and principal points this next three weeks will be the only points that are left to snag!


I am seeing way too many issues where students are choosing to be mean and unkind to each other.  This is resulting in students gossiping and spreading rumors about other students that may or may not be true, which is turning into discipline referrals.  This needs to stop NOW! You are here to get an education. Choose to be kind or to be quiet. 



I need you all to put forth your best effort and finish the second semester strong!  We only have 3 weeks and then we will be off for Christmas Break. I’d like to see no office referrals and low ICU referrals this next three weeks..  Semester grades are what determines if you are promoted to the next grade or not. Buckle down and take care of business.

Christmas Spirit Week 

Notice the mystery points at the bottom!  You won’t know how many I’m giving out until the assembly:)  They depend on your teachers participating in spirit week! 

House T-shirts

Don’t forget to wear your house t-shirts on Wednesday!  

Hallway Behavior

The hallways have become way too loud during passing times and in the mornings coming up from breakfast.  There is no need to shout and scream. Use inside voices or you will be asked to go back and try again until it’s an acceptable noise level.  


 Monday- Mr. Arnold (math and science)

Tuesday- Mrs. Tuttle (math and science)

Wednesday- Mrs. Calloway (English and history)

Thursday- Mrs. Brawley (English and history)
