A few changes for next year...
We are adjusting Wednesday's schedule to a late start. School will begin at 9:00 am with chapel followed by a schedule that will accommodate all the classes.
  • 2015/2016 school handbook
  • there will be supervision provided for parents that need to drop off students early
  • teachers will be accessible for help before school
  • when needed, parent conferences, student meetings, or faculty meetings can be better served at this time

Dress code has been clarified and simplified.  

  • A "quick reference sheet" is available that simplifies what is allowed on school uniform days. 
  • An easy reference: If it is on the list, it is allowed or required. If it is not on the list, it is not allowed.

Our electronics policy is being adjusted to make technology "work" for school.

  • cell phone and mp3 policy is being clarified to make it more workable for school
  • we are exploring STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics program) this next year with a desire for implementation in the 2016/2017 school year.
