    Greetings Junior Titan Families, this is Principal Ryan Shaw with some important school updates.
    As the school year is winding down, students are returning their tablets, tablet chargers, and all books to the library. The 6th graders return their stuff on Thursday. 7th and 8th graders have already started to return their materials. If 7th or 8th graders still have library materials, books, their tablet or charger they can return the items to the library before school and after school. It is important that all items are returned to avoid a charge being placed on your students account. 
    Have a wonderful day and stay titan strong
