Seniors! The College information and Readiness Club is bringing U-day to PK. On May 1st, the senior class is invited to celebrate their college commitments by wearing any shirt from the school they’ve chosen to attend. On the same day, seniors are also invited to sign their name on the College Board in the cafeteria at lunch. Show your post-secondary school spirit, Blue Wave. You’ve earned it!

Beginning today – slushies will only be sold during the first half of the lunch period in order for you to have time to consume them before heading back to class. For middle school, this means from 11:50-12:05 (Wednesday 12:05-12:20) and high school 12:30-12:45 (Wednesday 12:35-12:50).

NO SLUSHIES should be taken out of the cafeteria area.  We are having issues with them being spilled on furniture, Chromebooks, and other things. Teachers, NO SLUSHIES should be allowed inside ANY classrooms. Students, if you plan on having a slushy, buy it at the beginning of the lunch period and finish it before you head back to class.
