Happy Mother’s Day, I hope all our Spartan mothers had a wonderful day.  


Warmer weather ahead and another fun and busy week of academics and extracurricular activities.  


Students are reminded and encouraged to plan accordingly and manage responsibilities and obligations wisely.  Students should effectively utilize their remaining FLEX blocks to support academic progress and balance of extracurricular activities.


Have a great week!
