Athletic Physicals
On May 18th, our Athletic Department is hosting a physician to complete athletic physicals good for one calendar year.  The cost is only $10, and a portion of that comes back to our athletic department.  Physicals will begin at 3:30 after school, and will continue until all students are seen.

Course Selection for 2016-17
On Wednesday afternoon, students currently in grades 6th and 7th will receive the course selection sheet for next school year. Students will be asked to complete the schedule request with a parent signature no later than Tuesday, May 5/17.

Yellowstone Trip 2016
Each year we work with Bellaire HS to make available to our students a field experience at Yellowstone National Park. Later this week, students currently in grade 7 will receive a packet of information.  This trip will only be available to 8th grade students for the 2016-17 school year, and students who did not attend in 2015 will have priority. Selection will not be first come, first served.  We will evaluate all applications and consider the student's ability to maintain high academic standing while missing the week of school. The trip is expected to be scheduled for October 10-16, 2016.

Faculty vs Student Doubleheader
On Thursday afternoon, after testing concludes, our faculty will suit up to take on our students in a dodgeball game and a basketball game. The student body will be invited to purchase a wristband to attend for $3.  Wristbands will be on sale Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday before school and during lunch.

Uniform Preorder
Preorder uniforms by June 9th and pick up in August at Charger Camp.  You mau drop off cash or check with your order form in the front office or in the school store prior to Wednesday, May 25th. If paying by credit card, you must do that in person, at the school store before they close for the school year.  The school store is closed this week, but re-opens Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, 5/16-5/18.
