Seniors, it's time to start bringing in Senior pictures, baby pictures, and other pictures for the senior slideshow. Pictures can be dropped off in Mr. Brown’s computer lab whether they are hard copy or digital copies. Any pictures that can be sent in digitally (on a CD, flash drive, camera, or email) will be greatly appreciated since scanning the pictures takes up the most time. If you bring in hard copies of the pictures, please write your name on the back so they can be returned to you. Please turn in your pictures on time as no late pictures will be accepted unless you have spoken to Mr. Brown first. Their are multiple deadlines for pictures and they are listed below. For more information, click here.

AmeriGas School Days Program
Thanks to AmeriGas Propane, we are beginning a donation program that benefits the school district. The School Days program allows district residents to turn in their original propane receipts to the school district, and submit them to AmeriGas Propane for a donation. For every gallon shown on those original receipts, our school will earn $.02. Now, that might not seem like a lot of money, but it adds up quickly.
Original receipts can be submitted to the school office anytime, and we will do the rest. Please help us help our school. If you have any questions, please contact Amy Ayers at 295-3010 ext. 3002.
