    Graduation is a huge, communal effort, but must be spearheaded by one person. Khaisha Charles, our graduation coordinator, did a phenomenal job with assistance from Nicole McLaurin! Thank you for your hard work and attention to detail. 

    Our final PBIS activity was a success! The students enjoyed the field day experience. Thank you Karess McNeil, Charlene Cherry and the PBIS, Physical Education, Health, SPED and Professional School Counseling teams for assisting with the event!

    Ma.Roima Lim will be the Health and Bioscience academy coordinator moving into school year 2017-18. Thank you for stepping into this important role.

    A hug thank you to Nicole McLaurin for editing the weekly bulletin all year! You are appreciated!
