  • Today is an EARLY RELEASE day, so the schedule is a little different than usual.  We will be following a modified “Anchor” C-Day schedule. That means TA ends at 7:59, and then you’ll be attending periods 1 through 7.  Be sure to double-check that you’ve got the correct books and binders for class.  Again, this is a modified “Anchor” C-Day. See your TA teacher with any questions.

  • Wolf Pack Pride continues with the girls Soccer Team, who scored a BIG WIN on the road against Gunston yesterday, 6 to 5. The wolves were powered by 8th grader Anna L. and 7th grader Lola C. with 2-goals each, and 8th grader Bridget  L. and 7th grader Taylor R. who chipped-in one apiece.  It was a terrific all around effort.  Way to go, soccer wolves!!
