    • We are proud of all our students who did MCA testing.  They worked very hard and took the testing seriously.

    • We are proud of Mrs. Pietruszewski and the junior class for all their hard work to make the prom so spectacular.  Also, we are very proud of the junior class parents who did a fantastic job of keeping our students safe on prom night by donating a huge amount of time and effort to create a wonderful and fun after prom party.
