  • Today is a minimum day; students will be released at 12:52.  No school on Friday, November 10th in observance of Veterans’ Day.


  • Veterans Day is celebrated each year on November 11th.  This year’s holiday will be observed tomorrow.  Veterans Day honors all of the outstanding men and women who are serving or who have served in the U.S. military throughout our nation’s history. Be sure to take some time this weekend to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for us all.


  • "Sikhism is an independent and monotheistic religion. It is not a blend of Hinduism and Islam as some people may call it. It has its own set of beliefs, practices and customs. Talk to the Sikh students at your school and ask them about the festivals of Vaisakhi and Diwali."


  • "Project Venture will be meeting today after school at 1:00 PM. There will not be a meeting next week but our club will reconvene November 30th at our usual time. We hope to see you there!"


  • Due to the obstacle course at lunch, the basketball courts will be closed. Come over the the courts and see your friends compete!
