Students and teachers were able to represent the college of their choice by wearing a hat or shirt from that college.


Every student received a Chromebook this school year. The students can use them in the classroom or at home. This technology integration in the classroom will help meet students' individual learning needs and introduce a world of possibilities by enhancing our curriculum through communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking.
