2019-20 Registration in January

Believe or not, it is time to register for classes for the upcoming school year.  The Counseling Department will begin meeting with students starting January 10th.  We will meet with them as a group to provide them with the registration materials and help them select classes.  Students will then have the opportunity to go home and discuss their selections with you and make changes to their courses if needed.  We will then meet with each English class and individually input students' schedules into Synergy.

Unitown Tax Credit Donation
Please consider donating Tax Credit donations to Unitown this year! Unitown is designed to bring about greater appreciation of the similarities of people regardless of their diversities of race, creed, abilities or any other differences they may have. In addition to learning to look at another person's viewpoint, participants in Unitown are breaking down racial and cultural myths. The Unitown experience will prepare students to make wise decisions and become campus and community leaders and role models. Many students that are selected for Unitown have difficulty in paying for this amazing experience, and your tax dollars can make that happen. Thank you for your support.
