Attention Students – Being on-time is a critical component to being successful in every walk of life. Please note that beginning November 1st, if you are not in your 1st period classroom by 8:00am you will receive a detention.

Do you love the performing arts?  More importantly, do you hate Mr. Farinelli’s ponytail?  Throughout the rest of October, we will be collecting donations towards the new performing arts facilities.  Whoever brings in the most money gets to cut Mr. Farinelli’s hair!  Questions?  See Mr. Farinelli and his ponytail in the Black Box Studio Theatre.
