Daily Announcements


Today we want to shout out big congratulations to senior, Milena Larson.  Milena earned a PERFECT score on her college level AP Exam from this past spring.  Milena was one of only 46 students in the world to earn every point possible on the AP 3D Art and Design Exam.  This outstanding accomplishment is certainly something to be very proud of.

The character of the month theme for October is COOPERATION. Cooperation means getting along with others and working together. The FALCON Way word of the month is COLLABORATION. Collaboration means to work jointly or together with others especially in an intellectual endeavor. FALCONS let’s show our character by exhibiting COOPERATIVE and COLLABORATIVE traits for the chance to be nominated for the character of the next month.
