Freshmen Orientation Meeting

January, 2020

Dear 8th Grade Parents:


There will be a Freshmen Orientation meeting for all 8th grade parents on January 30, 2020 in the Performing Art Center beginning at 6:00 pm with our Elective showcase in the lobby area, followed by the program at 6:30 pm in the Auditorium. The purpose of this meeting is to give an overview of the curriculum, graduation requirements, course selections, and academic philosophy of the high school.  Administration and counselors will be present to answer questions and to talk about the scheduling process for the high school.  This meeting is for parents and students only.

Please plan to attend this very important meeting.  You may enter the school through the Performing Arts Center entrance.

Herma Simmons Fun Run


Parents! This year’s main fundraiser is the Herma Simmons Fun Run. It’s a two-week program that kicks off on February 18th. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Fun Run on February 27th.


This year our goal is to raise $10,000 for our PBSIS program, and we need your help!

  • On February 11th you can log into and create an account
  • Share your student’s pledge link with friends and family via email, text, and social media!
  • Create a Student Star Video by uploading a picture of your student, the video automatically creates!


Students will also experience an amazing character theme, MINDSPARK: WILD WEST! Booster’s most exciting theme yet combines S.T.E.A.M. skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they’re teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to save Dr. Shock, our students will learn five character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.


Thank you for your support!
