Below, please find a preview of the week to come as well as a few reminders & highlights:

Important Information for Seniors

  • Jostens met with the Senior class on Thursday Nov. 10th to discuss cap and gown orders as well as other materials that students may want to announce graduation.
  • If any student did not get an ordering packet from Jostens during this meeting, he/she can pick one up from Mrs. Nuckols in the Old Gym.
