We know our Raiders are trying to make plans for the summer and have had some questions lately about the last day of school for the 2023-24 school year. It is CURRENTLY May 30th. Please keep in mind that even though we have been blessed with wonderful weather lately, we may still need to use another emergency day before the end of the year and the last day could change.
The band and chorus students performed for the residents of The Lodge today in preparation for Solo & Ensemble Contest. Performing for others is a great way to help with nerves. Everyone did a great job!

Students in Señora Brodbeck's Spanish 2 class recently wrote their own four-act scripts about eating out in restaurants. They then shared their scripts with classmates who had to determine where everyone ate (from Avanti's to Nacho Mamas), what they had (from chicken alfredo to hairy—yes, hairy—chicken fingers), how the food was (you can imagine), and who paid the bill—if they paid it at all!
