    Announcements:

    • Welcome back, Panthers!! We hope you had a long, enjoyable break and are ready to begin a fresh, new semester! Here are a few things to note as you return on Wednesday:
      • Welcome Back Bell Schedule
      • School starts at 8:30am - we do not have late-start until the following week.
      • When arriving, please go directly to your Advisory class where you will enjoy some fun activities and get an overview of the school rules at your Class Assembly.
      • Please bring your devices fully charged and ready to go.
      • This will be a one-lunch day.
      • Remember, we operate on a what is called a "4x4 (four-by-four) Schedule" which means that a full year's course is taken in just one semester. You will have a brand new class schedule with all new classes starting Wednesday, so check Homelink (you will have time in your Advisory class too). This also means that your lunch may shift since lunches are based on where your 3rd period classes are held. 
      • Be prepare for inclement (poor) weather. The weather prediction is changing regularly, so be prepared for rain just in case. Arrive early and dress accordingly (please leave your blankets at home - this is not appropriate for school).
      • You will check out textbooks with your new classes later this and next week, so no need to stop by the Library/Research Lab.
      • If you are experiencing issues with your laptops, please arrive by 8am in the Library/Research Lab for assistance so you do not miss your activities taking place with your Advisory class.

    • Senior ELA Showcase - On behalf of the English department, we would like to invite you to attend our inaugural Senior Showcase event on Monday, December 12th from 5:45-8:00pm. Our English 12 and AP Literature students have been working on self-designed service learning projects that focus on solving problems that they see in their own community. Senior Showcase is their chance to present their work not only to their teachers and classmates, but to parents, friends, neighbors, community leaders - and most importantly, YOU!
