CONGRATULATIONS PHOENIX

CLASS OF 2019!

If you would like a copy of the presentation or pictures taken during Graduation, Mrs. Gallaher has digital copies available in the office.

GYM DAYS

Ladies will be able to use the gym at lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays, while Gentlemen will have the gym Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

NEW LAPTOP POLICY

We have a large number of students that are using laptops inappropriately and irresponsibly, therefore beginning Tuesday, 5.14.19, teachers will now need to check out the laptops for their classes from Mrs. John in the library rather than sending students to pick them up.

Students will NOT be allowed to pick up laptops on their own, so students SHOULD NOT ask to check them out.

Teachers, please DO NOT send students to the library to pick them up.

Students remember that rules are only needed if you are not acting responsibly. If you want to eliminate a rule, you need to show you can be responsible for yourself and others and make that rule unnecessary. Phoenixes take care of and honor themselves AND everyone in their community.

SUMMER SCHOOL 2019
