Schedule alteration for 8th grade class: As you can imagine, being out of school for a week during the last two and a half weeks of the school year, causes some major reassessment of end of year activities. We have done our best to cancel and reshuffle as few as is humanly possible. However, some of the activities we had previously planned simply couldn’t be pulled off with a week knocked out of the calendar. That being said, we have heard from several 8th grader’s parents telling us that you really wanted the 8th Grade Awards Night to take place as originally scheduled, so we decided to make that happen. I take responsibility for any confusion that has taken place and apologize for such. Wayne Stewart
