Today is the beginning of Red Ribbon Week. National Red Ribbon Week celebration plays tribute to a DEA Special Agent Enrique S. "Kiki" Camarena who was killed while trying to stop drug trafficking in the United States. This week our school will focus on the prevention of underage drinking and tobacco use, and misuse of prescription drugs as well as use of all illegal drugs. Please see link below for informational video about Red Ribbon Week. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7kef2XtnHk

FAFSA is available now! Seniors need to make sure to file if you haven't already.
Last summer I was fortunate enough to attend the Governor's Scholar Program at Centre College. This was one of the most unique events I have been able to attend and I made so many new friends! As a junior wanting to apply, it can be a little stressful. The application is rigorous and in depth, requiring copious amounts of information. Let me share a tip that helped me with the application process immensely. 1. Set a goal to write three sections every night. This can be three from different categories of the application or all in the same section. For example, I wrote one entry for extracurriculars, honors/awards, and service every night. This way, you pace yourself with the application and don't get overwhelmed. Feel free to ask me any questions; I would love to help you make this dream a reality as I did for myself.

The following is a message from the MCPS Transportation Department we emailed to families earlier today: Parents, Given the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we cannot currently allow what we historically have called "note riders" -- that is, students who bring a note in order to ride a bus when they typically do not use MCPS transportation. For example, a student would not be able to bring a note indicating that he/she will ride a bus to a friend's house on a particular day. In the past, we've been able to accommodate those situations, but with our current set of COVID-19-related health requirements, this is not possible. However, we are able to work with families if a student who normally rides a bus needs to be dropped off at a different location. For example, some students may occasionally need to be dropped off at a relative's home. As we continue to receive health-related guidance, we'll update our procedures and share that information with you. Thank you and please stay healthy.
Reminder: Our first re-entry date for students currently enrolled in Distance-Learning is September 23. Please communicate with your school if your child plans to return to In-Person learning.
