All grade levels are testing in Math this week through Friday.  It is important everyone be well rested and show up on time as interruptions to the testing environment should be minimal. 


May 31st will be the Culture Fair for 6 and 7th grade students 2nd per to 4 per.  Keep working on your awesome projects.


Due to 8th graders being at SunSplash and 6th & 7th graders doing the culture fair on 5/31, the last day the student store will be open is this Friday, May 24th.  Make sure if you plan to use your Panther bucks this year, come by during lunch May 24th.  You can save them- 6th & 7th graders, to use next year at the student store.


We will still be doing the last spirit count on Friday May 31st.  There will not be an official count this Friday due to SBAC block schedule, however still wear your school spirit every Friday!

Friday's tasting went great!  Each lunch had approximately 100 students come out to try the fruit dip, with over 300 tastings going out overall.  The voting was calculated and about 80% of the student body liked the fruit dip! Leadership looks forward to continue to promote fruits and vegetables, and are planning new tastings for next year!


The jog a thon was a huge success this year!!  Thanks to all who did fundraising for our awesome Ropes Course.  We couldn't fund it without everyone's help so thank you.

Top fundraisers were:  Anthony, Alana, and Isabella
