8th Grade Formal

8th Grade Formal is here! For all of you students, this is the end of the year dance for us, celebrating the fact that we lived through middle school! Yay! The theme is Dancing Through The Decades.

Tickets are $10! It takes place on Saturday, June 17th, located in the cafeteria from 7pm to 10pm.


See you there!




As many of you already know and have already taken them, the SOLs are here! Please take the time to study for them, get good rest, and eat nutritiously so you can be as ready as you’ll ever be when you enter the tests. DO NOT bring electronic devices to the test. The Science SOL is Thursday, June 1st. If you need any help understanding something, have a studying question, or need any help, DON’T BE AFRAID TO ASK MRS. CORTESI! It’s what she’s there for! Good luck to all and may the testing odds ever be in your favor!!!!!!!!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Make sure to tell your mother that you love and appreciate her for all she does! Thanks to all mothers for helping us so much and for all of your love and support! We love you all!!!!
