Please stand for the Pledge:
I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of the United States of America, and to the Republic, for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
And now for a moment of reflection
If you need a loaner chromebook, please visit the Tech Office before 8:30am.
It is important to remember your chromebook daily and to bring it charged and ready for class. Please carry your chargers in your case so if your battery gets low at the end of the day you can charge it. We are seeing more students for loaners everyday and only have a limited number of chromebooks.
All band classes and band lessons with Mrs. Parker are canceled for today.
