We are at the end of 1st semester already and all is well.

Alumni Pathfinder Awards: Our district created a way to recognize alumni for their contributions to the community. Staff members can nominate alumni who have been out of high school 10 or more years and have made significant contributions to the community. Criteria for the awards can be found on our district website. The district is accepting nominations now through February 19, 2016.Read More
