AP test fees are due for students before the holidays.  Each test costs $93.  If you need to set up a payment plan, please contact Ms. Huff in the guidance office by December 1, 2016.  This fee is to pay for the test and is not the same as the class fee taken by teachers.  The test fee should be paid in the guidance office as soon as possible, so tests can be ordered.

 

National Honor Society has begun collecting for the annual Toys for Tots campaign. In addition to collecting from students this year, we will also be collecting from parents during the afternoon in the car rider line. 🙂 Parents, please consider donating to such a worthy cause.
