Parent-Student Handbooks:

The Secondary Handbook 2012-2013 and the Elementary Handbook 2012-2013 are now both on the website. The handbooks have been updated for this year. Please read them thoroughly as there have been additions, deletions, and changes.

Earlier this week, we processed $2130 in orders with an average of 3.3% rebate to the school or $68.80. The good news is we did this with very little participation (about 7 families). Not one of these families did anything other than purchase the scrip through They will now take their scrip cards to the stores, restaurants, gas stations, etc., and will spend exactly what they purchased. It is a WIN-WIN situation!!! You get what you paid for, and the school gets “free money”. Just think what we could do if every school family participated by ordering at least for their gas and groceries!! Check it out this weekend! If you have any questions on how to get started, call the school office.
