PurSUing a Culture of Academic Rigor and excellence.
Attention Parents of 8th Grade Students
If your child is presently enrolled in any of the approved Carnegie Unit classes, a Carnegie Unit Decision Form will be sent home for each class in which your child is enrolled on Tuesday May 16, 2017. The approved classes are: Accelerated Algebra I, Algebra I, Biology, Physical Science 9-12, and Spanish I.
Completed forms are due back to the school on or before Monday, May 22nd, 2017. Your student should return the completed form, or forms, to their Science teacher OR the 8th grade office. If your child is enrolled in more than one Carnegie unit class, a completed Carnegie Unit decision form MUST be returned for each class.
Please read the entire form before signing and returning to the school. A SIGNED FORM MUST BE RETURNED REGARDLESS OF THE DECISION.

We Need Box Tops!
Please bring box tops to school! Each grade level will be collecting them. The school receives money for turning them in. Your homeroom teacher knows where the box tops go. Thank you for your support!
We recently celebrated the upcoming retirement of five of Grace Snell's teachers (L-R): Mr. Cavenaugh, Ms. Bryant, Dr. Loveless, Mr. Guillebeau, and Ms. O'Rourke. See some of the highlights of our celebration below.
