Curriculum Night -- 9/19/17 6:30-8:30pm

Please join us for Curriculum Night on Tuesday 9/19 from 6:30-8:30pm. Curriculum Night is an opportunity for parents/guardians to experience a day in the life of their teenager.

Welcome begins promptly at 6:30 in the Auditorium with Ms. Dean and a bell schedule follows. Here's what you can expect:
