FALL BLOOD DRIVE

The Fall Blood Drive will be held in the Brother Arnold Gym on Thursday, October 6, from 8 am - 2 pm. Students must be 16 and older to donate. Sign-up instructions are posted on the Announcements and Parents Association Schoology pages. Parent consent forms and Blood Drive info packets are available in the Main Office.

NATIONAL TESTING DAY

October 12, 2022

Students will be taking the PSAT 8/9 (9th graders), the PSAT (10th graders) and PSAT/NMSQT (11th graders). These important tests are used for course placement and will help with gauging student progress. Colleges do not see these scores.  

Students may access the PSAT 8/9 and PSAT/NMSQT practice exams to help them better understand what what will be on the tests. If you have any questions, please contact
Ms. Mallegni Ohanessian
or your student’s counselor.

February 19 - 25, 2023

The classes of 2023, 2024, and 2025 are invited to Washington, DC with students from all over the country! Close-Up focuses on educating high school students about our government, and engaging them in legislative simulations and policy debates.

BLUE AND GREEN  SCHEDULE CHANGES

Please note that the course rotation changes, starting on Tuesday, September 27. Blue schedule days will be 7,2,3,1 and Green schedule days will be 8,5,4,6. Rotating our schedule allows students to attend different classes at different times of the day, which can make for better learning and ensure that student athletes, who must sometimes leave campus early for games, do not miss the same classes throughout the semester.

Parents, families, and registered seniors have been given instructions regarding the Kairos 50 Senior Retreat, taking place from September 27 - 30, 2022. Please reach out to Mr. Vaughan with questions. We appreciate your prayers and support!
