Our State PARCC Assessments are coming up on April 12th & 15th, so if you want to bring your own earbuds to use during testing instead of using the District-provided headphones, please feel free to bring them to school on testing days. Also, if you have a graphing calculator that is a TI-84 or better, you may bring that to use on the "Calculator Section" of the math tests. If you do not have one, there will be one available to you in the Testing Environment that you can access though the test itself.

At the 2014 State Thespian Convention, Carmen Legg and Aziza Gharib qualified to compete at the National Thespian Convention in the duet acting category.
