We wish to remind /inform parents that there are many social media websites that middle schoolers use in ways which are inappropriate.  Currently students are using “Instagram” as the latest forum to bully, harass and hurt other students.  In many instances the comments appear as anonymous, in others students are able to hack into another students account and impersonate them.  As a school it is our responsibility to address incidents of internet bullying and harassment, unfortunately when it is anonymous we can only support the victim and do little to hold the culprits responsible.


April Breakfast - Please note that as of Dec. 2nd all breakfasts will be "Express" so you can Grab & Go ! All breakfasts are FREE.
