class activities associated with school culture and instruction
paperback copy of the book chosen for the School Wide Book Read in January
25 prints per month from their Chromebooks
each class account rolls over to ultimately pay for their Senior Graduation (Timmons Arena rental, programs, decorations). Last year graduation expenses totaled $7,000.00.
