Principal's Update

Please be advised that as of Monday January 30th, any student that is seen without an ID and lanyard around their necks will be assigned a detention. There have been a high number of students who have not been doing this lately, and for safety reasons we need to enforce this policy. If a student has lost their ID they can get a new one in the main office.


Friday January 27 - Grades will be available on ASPEN X2 after 3 pm this afternoon


Please see the flyer below for Monday, Feb 6, 2017, a Big Blue Hockey fundraiser in honor of Nathan Deroche, a future Big Blue player who is battling Lymphoma. All proceeds from this game go directly to his family. Thank you for your support.

GREEN Scholars is a service learning course that focuses on environmental sustainability. The Green Scholars course is based on the experiential education model that includes community partners. Each student has been challenged to design and implement an environmental sustainable project. The project below is seeking community input to guide the project.

Hello, my name is Ellie Wight and I am a senior at the high school. This year I am enrolled in a class called GREEN Scholars in which we are to create a service based project all year with the idea of sustainability in mind. For my project I have chosen to create a small scale bike share proposal for our town. I have created a short survey to get community input. Please help out my project by participating in the survey linked below.


Thank you for your participation,
Ellie Wright
