Bee in the Know

Week of April 10, 2022

Spring Break is finally here! We’d like to thank our staff and students for all of the hard work they have put into the year so far. We hope everyone has a restful and relaxing break and that all are able to recharge and return ready to finish out the school year. AP and SOL tests will be upon us quickly after the break and then we get to look forward to graduation and summer. Take this next week to relax so you can return to school ready to finish the year strong!

Jostens will be handing out caps, gowns, and announcements to all students who pre-ordered them on May 5. They will be set up outside of the first floor cafeteria during all lunch shifts that day. We will also be handing out senior yard signs to ALL seniors that day!
