Here is your May 24th weekly update for school events and information (This may be the last update for the year):

Just a quick reminder about FSA and EOC testing that is taking place this week.  On Monday and Tuesday (May 24th and 25th) all our online Algebra and Geometry students are scheduled to take their EOC exams.  Any student that missed the math FSA are encouraged to participate in make-ups on Wednesday and Thursday (May 26th and May 27th) beginning at noon each day.
