Principal’s Message

It was so great to see so many students and families at the 6th grade barbecue yesterday. Thank you to Ms. Gathers and the parents/guardians who volunteered and made the event a success!

We have reached the mid-point of the first advisory. All of our students received their progress reports last Wednesday and we will have Parent-Teacher Conferences on Friday, October 11 from 12:00 noon until 7:00 pm. The link for scheduling a conference with your child's team teacher will be available until Wednesday, October 9.

  • Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your appointment;

  • Be familiar with your child's Progress/ASPEN Report;

  • Feel free to bring your child with you. Remember, your child must stay with you; and

  • Visit all of your child's teachers, including World Language, Music, Art, and Physical Education.

This weekend, the 8th grade members of the Speech and Debate Team traveled to Duke University for their first competition of the year. Competing amongst 400 high school students representing 11 states, the Viking debaters rose to the top of the heap and brought home a number of awards:

Devan Tatlow - 3rd place, Lincoln Douglas debate, 5th place speaker
Inez Spellacy-Baah and Kate O'Brien - 3rd place, Public Forum debate
Kate O'Brien - 3rd Speaker

Congratulations to our amazing debaters!

Thank you to our incredible ADCA for their support during last week's National Blue Ribbon School celebration! From the balloon arch to serving cake to nearly 1,500 middle schoolers - they truly went above and beyond in support of our school.

Onward and Upward!
