    Welcome back Alphonso Jiles! You have been sorely missed.

    Our admin, security, and office teams are to be commended for how they handled the midday dismissal last Monday. The teams worked together under very difficult circumstances to manage the situation. A special thank you to Byonka Gregory for managing the situation and Robin Rubain who also stepped in to assist. You all are the best!

    Thank you Gary Hughes and Elizabeth Dennis for staying late on Tuesday to attend the general body PTSO meeting. You both contributed a lot to the conversation. Thank you! Also, kudos to Tania Chandler for also staying for the meeting and presenting to the parents. Great job!

    Thank you Nicole McLaurin, Khaisha Charles, Consuella Gibson, Tania Chandler, Robin Rubain, Melody Thompson, Bianca Kennon, and Brian Makell for supporting Blended Learning registration last week. Student participation is vital for us to meet our 94% graduation rate goal!
