    Your freshman is nearly done with the first semester of high school ​and we hope it was a resounding success. And we hope you’re navigating high school parenthood seamlessly and getting answers to all your questions.  If not, never forget that we’re available. 


    It was said in Kristina Short’s president’s message earlier this month, but it is certainly worth mentioning again: Thank you so much to the freshman families who generously donated to our Adopt-A-Family class project.  We are overwhelmed by the generosity of our 2023 families. In just a few short months you’ve stepped up in big ways and we are thankful.


    Winter Carnival is Saturday, January 25.  It is the first of our three annual fundraisers to help offset costs of senior year celebration events in 2022-2023.  Angela Weaver and her team of sub-chairpersons have been busy, but it can’t happen without the support of our freshman parents and students. 


    So now comes our BIG ASK for donations in support of Winter Carnival.  Several committee chairpersons have joined together and provided a list of needed items.  Please review the list of prizes, food, supplies, and more. Sign Up to help our class provide tons of fun for our community.  Be on the lookout for ways you and your student can donate your time and talent just after the first of the year.



    If you have general questions about Winter Carnival, please reach out to Angela Weaver at



    Friday, December 20-   Winter Break Begins after Final Exams
