School Supply Lists

Administration has provided school supply lists. Note that these are optimized for in person learning. Use lists as a reference when setting up your at home stations but teachers may have suggestions once classes begin. I would recommend earphones and a dry erase board of some sort (page protector works just fine). Click the link below to view lists.

School supplies for those in need:

The annual Give BACKpacks campaign is pivoting this year to respond to the needs of our students. For just $10, you can provide a student in need with supplies for virtual learning, which could include, paper, crayons, pencils/pens, white boards, dry erase markers, and more.

Not all students have the materials needed to learn at home.  Your donation will help provide students with the necessary supplies to engage successfully in their lessons.

If you would like to donate to this program to help others in our community please visit here.

2019/2020 Yearbook

Because of the state closures yearbooks were delayed. Unfortunately as of now we do not have a delivery date for yearbooks. As of early July we know that it will still be several weeks before yearbooks will be delivered. We will determine a distribution plan once we have a production date. Thank you for your patience.
