Friday, November 3rd is the last day of the six weeks. Hard to believe we are only three weeks away from Thanksgiving break and 1/4 through the year. November is a quick month with a lot going on please continue to remind your student to monitor grades and attend tutorials. 

On Thursday, November 9th at 1:15pm we will honor Veterans during an assembly in the high school gym. Many of our students will take part in the assembly. We invite you to attend and look forward to seeing you there.

Tuesday is Halloween this is not a dress up or costume day at the high school. We will not run an afterschool / iTigers bus Tuesday due to Halloween and iTigers will be finished at 4:30pm on Tuesday.

National Honor Society, Spanish National Honor Society, and Art National Honor Society students and their parents will be recognized before the football game this evening. You will begin lining up at 6:45pm on the track.
