Please join us tonight, November 7, where the school will be participating in student-led conferences for middle school students and walk-the-schedule night for high school.  Student-led conferences for middle school will be from 6:00-7:00pm and gives students the opportunity to share their work in all of their classes with their family. Walk-the-schedule will be from 7:00-8:00pm and gives parents the opportunity to visit their students’ high school classes and hear what their students have been learning during the first quarter.
