    Last week a well attended Senior Class parent meeting was held.  Thank you to Khaisha Charles, Nicole McLaurin, and Charoscar Coleman for making it successful.  It was standing room only!

    Thank you to the Science, Business, and World Languages departments for conducting productive learning walks.  Tanya Adkission, Tonya Manago, and Dr. Jane Ware are to be commended for leading their teams through this process.
