Principal's Message

The second quarter of the school year is one of my favorite times of the year.  We have so many holidays and normally a lot of sports going on as well.  I hope this month finds you healthy and safe.  Even though we wish you were here at school, it is good to see you in our google classrooms.  Last week was Red Ribbon Week.  Many students and staff dressed up for the different days.  With everyone learning from home, we need weeks like this to give our students something to get excited about.  Thank you to our County Attorney George Silva for speaking to our students.  Wade Carpenter is a voting center and we have gotten ready to have our community on campus to vote.  November is also the month for our second quarter progress reports.  Students need to make sure you are caught up with your Edgenuity work.  If you are having difficulties, many of your teachers are offering tutoring.  If additional help is needed, please call and talk to one of our counselors.  Stay healthy and safe and Go Eagles!
