Great job Nicole McLaurin (Multiple Pathways coordinator), Jasmine Stewart, Nicole Maynor-Stevens, Dionisio Fragante, Travis Chase, Stacey Yule, Simona Strother, Johnita Montgomery, Nathalie Rosales, Christopher Bethea, Curtis Matthews, and Byonka Gregory. Wonderful work!

    Thank you Johnita Montgomery, National Honor Society sponsor, for providing the staff with a token of appreciation from the students last week. The show of thanks was appreciated!

    Robert Garner has led the boys’ basketball Pumas to an undefeated record, number one rank in the DMV by the Washington Post, a national ranking in the top 25 according to Max Prep and playing in the county championship this week. Wonderful job and good luck in the playoffs!

    Senior, Malachi Maxwell, has been accepted at Ferrum College to play lacrosse. This is a wonderful accomplishment and aligns with Dr. Maxwell’s vision of promoting lacrosse in our high schools to allow our students to compete for college opportunities. Congratulations head lacrosse coach, Jeanine Cummings, for supporting this worthy vision.
