General

Sports Physicals: If you have a 9th or 11th Grade student who is planning to participate in sports this year, he/she will need to have a physical before the season begins (especially time sensitive for volleyball and cross country). See the Principal’s Page for the correct form to bring to your doctor.

11th Grade Class Choices:

Functions & Statistics or Pre-Calculus

During registration, juniors will need to select one of two math classes, Functions & Statistics or Pre-Calculus.  We recommend that students who averaged 85% or lower on their Algebra II exams take Functions & Statistics.  The Algebra II exam grade was supplied on last year’s report card.  If you don’t have this information handy, feel free to contact me.

Greek or Music

11th graders are allowed to choose between Greek and music for their M/W/F first period class. Those who have completed Latin in their 9th and 10th grade years have all of their required foreign language credits for graduation. Please note that beginning in 2013 graduates will need Greek in order to receive an honors diploma.
