Good morning, Blue Wave.  Today is Friday, May 11th and it is a B Day!




Today is O Day, hope that you’re wearing the color orange. Monday is N Day, be sure to wear a necktie, necklace, or neon colors.


Attention students who are registered to take AP exams:

There are only four circumstances whereby a student may makeup up an AP Exam:


  • Family Emergency/Crisis (requires note from parent/guardian)
  • Conflicting School Event (requires note from school sponsor)
  • Serious Illness (requires note from doctor)
  • Conflict with another AP exam


Health Smart Tip of the Day: Challenge yourself to try a new vegetable! You can add it to a recipe you have or look for new recipes online. If you do not like the taste of vegetables, mix some into a fruit smoothie! Spinach and Kale are both great options for mixing vegetables in smoothies. Vegetables give our bodies important vitamins and minerals.


All lost and found items will be discarded today.  The items have been organized to be easily recognizable and will be on display in the ISD room during school today.  PLEASE come claim your clothing, lunch boxes, water bottles and other items before they are tossed.


Attention Students: Yearbooks are now available for purchase. The staff will be selling yearbooks during lunch on Mondays and Fridays for the remainder of the year. You may also purchase copies at the business office. Price is $70.
