For Parent/Teacher Announcements:

College 4 Kids as a special offering for the current 8th grade students.  We are asking if any student who is a leader in your class would be interested in volunteering for C4K?  Students could earn 40 silver cord hours during this two week period.  They would be able to add those hours toward their high school hours as a volunteer.

You could send me an email and I would be happy to send them the information or ask the student to contact me at for more information.  Also students can stop down and see me as well.

C4K will be held at Jefferson & Central this year from June 13-24.

I have added the website so all can see what is offered and how they might help with younger students.


Due to the fact that the last day of school has been changed to May 26, the 8th grade Recognition Day has been rescheduled for Wednesday, May 25 from 12-1 in the school auditorium. You are welcome to celebrate this special day. Auditorium doors will open at 11:30.  See you there.

New Boundary Look Up Tool Available!

Posted: 15 Mar 2016 08:55 AM PDT

There is now a new “boundary” lookup tool for parents to use for determining which school a certain address “should” attend. It’s very easy and intuitive. (It DOES NOT indicate whether a student should ride the bus or walk.)



  • To use it full screen click the “full screen” button in the upper right-hand corner of the map interface.
  • You can use the sprocket icon to choose which “layers” are shown. By default only the district layer is shown, but you can change that to elementary boundaries, middle school etc.
  • When you search an address it will show you which elementary, middle school and high school (only one choice) that address should attend.
  • You can also click the directions and it will use google maps to plot walking or driving directions from the home to the school
