One-half of the fall semester is behind us! Thank you for sending your students prepared to learn! As we continue to prepare your children for post-secondary educational opportunities, I wanted to make you aware of a few announcements.

 On Monday, November 2, our classes will travel to the Media Center to create email accounts.  Communicating correctly and effectively is essential to your child's academic development. Our team will utilize these email accounts to send assignments and various other class announcements. We want to keep you informed as well. Please send your email addresses to me at to be added to the Blue Team Parent Contact list. It is my hope that these email addresses will be used throughout your child's high school career.
