... And some items of interest for planning a successful year
Current Addresses: Please let the office know if you have a change of address. Families must provide proof of residence such as a utility bill or rental agreement. If there is more than one address per family, please indicate where the student resides.
Emergency Numbers: It is very important that parents keep the school informed of changes in addresses and phone numbers, both home and work. Emergency contacts and phone numbers are especially crucial if a student becomes ill or injured. Please notify the school office at 967-6425 or 967-6427 when such changes occur. We can accommodate cell phone numbers and e-mail addresses as well.
The following sports are available to 7th & 8th graders:
Sports participation forms may be picked up outside of the office window. You only need one physical for the entire school year, and most parents take care of this during the summer.
