Open House--For the last time, our Open House is going to be alfresco. We welcome our friends, family and potential new Spartans to school on Thursday March 28. We have a regular day schedue, and then finish with a Minimum Day on the Friday. We are going to have our band and choir and cheer squad spreading their good cheer starting at 6:00 p.m. at the lunch tables and then folks are free to see our staff and administration in the Blue room and Gold room the rest of the evening. Our counselors will be here to answer questions and our AP teachers will be doing a presentation around 7:00 for any and all interested in what comes next. Use this night to connect with your teachers and learn what is ahead for the next ten weeks (if you are enrolled) or for next year (if you intend to enroll). We are hoping you take a last look around at the campus too. This will be our last significant school function at the portables, so if you have the opportunity for a victory lap, this might be the night to do it. Open House--Full Hearts!
