    Hello Warrior Families:

    This Friday we held our annual 8th Grade Celebration. It was wonderful seeing so many of our 8th Grade Warriors celebrate their final year of middle school together at the masquerade-themed evening event. Students enjoyed the light dinner and dessert, masquerade mask-making table, photo booth, and DJ-run dancing. Many thanks to Ms. Porter, Mrs. Angerman, and our ASB students for organizing the event, and our many staff supporters who helped plan and prepare the event and were on hand to help celebrate 8th graders. We are excited to continue our end-of-year celebrations and activities next week with Field Day, Awards Assemblies, and our student/staff volleyball game on the last day. Let’s make it a great end of our year, Warriors!
