Good Saturday morning, Raptor Families

Three weeks - it is hard to believe that we have completed the first three weeks of this school year. If you have seen the new modular structure coming together in the rear of the main school building, you might be wondering how we are going to utilize these classrooms. This eight classroom unit will be used primarily for our high school students and teachers.
 Our history department and math department will be located in this area. Our science department and English department will remain in the main building. The addition of these classrooms will allow us to continue to expand our high school electives as well. READ MORE

P.S. - COVID updates
In case you missed the update sent out earlier this week regarding the school’s procedures for handling COVID cases at school you can read the letter here.

Feed a Raptor
Help feed a Raptor! We would like to invite those who can donate nutritious food items for lunch. Our Family & Consumer Science class can prepare sandwiches, vegetables, and fruits for bagged lunches, but we need the food to fill the bags! We are in need of sandwich meats, cheeses, vegetables that can be consumed raw, .... fruit, yogurt, and granola bars. We also need lunch bags and sandwich baggies. You can drop off these items in the car line. Monetary donations earmarked for this cause are also welcome and greatly appreciated. Make a financial contribution here

The most important part of a child's daily instruction schedule is the BEGINNING.
To that end, many of our families completely rely on our transportation services to safely bring their children to and from school at one of our thirteen cluster stops across the area.
But the fact is that we are in critical need of additional drivers, and we're calling on all of you to help recruit drivers for this important component of our operations.
Even if you don't take advantage of our transportation services, chances are pretty high that your children share classes and friendships with a student who does.
Despite all of the things that make us unique, we are a Raptor family. Let's spread the word far and wide for this great opportunity to be a very important part of your children's education - getting them here to learn!
