Electives – WE NEED YOU!

THANK YOU to all of our trimester 2 elective volunteers.  Thank you Jessica Barney, Jessica Gamble, Iva McClurg, Adriana Solorio, Brandi Lopez, and Jeanine Pells.  Special thanks to middle school elective teachers who planned a trimester’s worth of classes for their peers:  Zion Engle, Rebekah Clark, Tyler Barajas, and Elijah Shirley.  These volunteers make it possible for our students to explore many different interests!

Third Trimester volunteers needed!  Do you have one hour per week between 2 and 3 pm to lead or monitor an elective?   We have several middle school students who want to teach an outdoor sports elective on Tuesday, but they need an adult to supervise.  Roller skating is popular, and we need several people to monitor student safety and equipment.  Recent student polls show interest in soccer, board games, cooking, debate, ultimate frisbee, special effects makeup, photography, and woodworking.  Third trimester electives begin March 16 and go through May 28th.  If you are willing to help out with or have questions about electives, please email  Thank you!


Middle School Parents.  Graduation team is looking for someone to make a video slide of the current 8th graders for their graduation night.  If you are interested please reply to this email.  Thank you – Middle School Team



All late or fix-it assignments for trimester 2 are due on Friday, February 28.  Assignments will not be accepted after that.
