I added a new test date for the SAT. January 26th is an added test date so be sure and sign up before December 28th. Also, as a reminder regulations for both the SAT and ACT require students to upload photos when they register. Be sure to do this before the deadline. Otherwise your registration will be canceled and you will not be able to take the test on the selected test date. :( So be prepared!
Thank you to all who attended the Senior Parent Night. It was nice to see so many seniors and their parents in attendance. Great information was provided by Angela Murphy and Allison Long regarding financial aid and Jack Detzel did a recap about the Career Guides and Ft. Greely Career Day in February.

As we get further into the school year, and having less and less time in my actual office, I decided to use this platform to make announcement, interact with students and parents, and share important information with everyone. There is no promises that I will update this page on a daily basis, but I will definitely try to maintain this website to the best I can.
Please do take advantage of this virtual office. I look forward to hearing from you :)
