2016-17 School Year Orientation and Supply Lists

Orientation for students will take place on Tuesday, August 30, 2016. Students will: have their photos taken for yearbook & ASB cards, receive their schedules, check out their lockers, add money to their lunch accounts, meet some of their new teachers, get their PE shirts and much more. Students can bring their supplies to put in their new locker so they will be ready for the first day of school. This is a day that works best when a parent accompanies the students and gets a tour of their new schedule, locker and pays for their items. Below are the times for each grade level and a link for the student supplies as well as a list of items that will be purchased at Orientation. 

6th Grade 9:00am - 12:00pm

7th Grade 1:00pm - 3:00pm

8th Grade 3:00pm - 5:00pm
