Three Virtual Choirs:
What better to end the school year and begin summer than with SONG! Take some time to listen to the three wonderful virtual choirs that were accomplished during distance learning. The first is "I Lived" selected as the Graduation Song, then is "One Voice", and finally, "Stars I Shall Find".
Once again our music department does not disappoint. Enjoy!
WELL DONE WILDCATS!
AP/ ECE Summer Work:
In an effort to streamline summer work and reading, our Library Media Specialists in our district have created a wonderful resource: this web page accessible at our Region 18 site.
All AP/ECE assignments as well as summer learning resources/assignments can be found at this site (Select the image above to access). From there, you can either click on the AP icon on the homepage (lower right) or on the Reading/Math/Science Page and there are links to a Region 18 web page that has any assignments.
Summer Reading & Learning
While we don't have a prescribed summer reading list for underclassmen, we highly recommend that students and families refer to this page for wonderful summer reading recommendations. Additionally, there are several links at the top of the page that offer various resources in Math, Science, physical activity, etc. We invite you to take a look ... there are many summer opportunities there.
