    Happy February!

    We returned from our 10th grade college trip last weekend and it was a great, fun filled and educational trip for all.  We visited George Washington University, University of Richmond, University of Virginia, North Carolina State, Duke University, UNC Chapel Hill, University of Mary Washington and ended with lunch at the University of Delaware.  Our students had the opportunity to see public and private schools, large and small schools, schools that are within a city and those which have a campus setting.  They had tours, talked with current students, and had the experience of eating in many college dining halls throughout the trip.   

    We have started the scheduling process for the 2019-2020 school year.  School counselors are visiting classrooms this week to prepare our students for their course selections for next year.  They will each receive a 2019-2020 course offering guide so be sure to look through the book with your child.  Teachers have made their recommendations and students are encouraged to talk with their families about the best courses to request for next year.  Counselors are available should any student or family member have a question about the process.

    Winter sports are in the height of their season keeping our athletes busy.  Many of our students are rehearsing for our upcoming high school musical, Legally Blonde.  I am happy to hear the music and voices as I walk past each afternoon. 

    Please refer to our calendar to see all of the exciting events taking place here at the high school!
