The 12 School Days of Christmas

We will continue our 12 School Days of Christmas activity counting down until Christmas Break.  An icon from the famous Christmas song will be hidden in the cafeteria (do not go behind the serving line) at lunch.  It will alternate between JH and HS lunches.  If you find it, please bring it to Mrs. Stairs in the library to exchange it for a free drink.



Our school has been asked to support the community by participating in this year’s Parade of Lights on Saturday, Dec 7 at 5 p.m. Entries can be decorated vehicles or floats.
