2018-19 is off to a brilliant start!  We opened the year with a 1.5-day freshman orientation led by our amazing junior and senior Tiger Pride Link Crew leaders. The assembly on that day was spectacular!
On the 23rd and 24th of August, our staff issued more than 800 Chromebooks to all four grade levels.  Students who did not receive a Chromebook will be issued one as soon as they pay the $25 tech fee and sign a parent contract.  Students are responsible for bringing a fully charged Chromebook to class every day. Any student who loses or breaks their Chromebook should report to Ms. Bussey in the media center to receive a replacement.
Our Professional and Internship Community Experience is kicking off with 155 students already scheduled for internships this year. Our goal is 175 internships! Please see Mrs. Tedesko in the media center for more information.
Every sophomore is taking a new course called, Capstone and Career Preparation.  The course will prepare them for the internship program during their junior year and a culminating Capstone project when they are seniors. Thank you to Mrs. Lori Coppa for leading this curriculum effort!
Come by and check out our new media center and maker space. Thanks to several grants over the summer, we have new furniture and a place for students to work on projects with the materials provided.
