 Attention movie makers: this is your first notice for the revived Thespian Film Festival 2019.  The festival will be held Friday, March 29. Movies must be submitted on or before Monday March 25. Start planning now because it is expected that all technical problems will be resolved before submission otherwise the movie will not be considered.  See Mr. Woolery for more information and guidelines. 

As the holiday season and the end of the 1st semester get closer, students can often feel the extra stress.  It is always a good idea to speak with your counselor, but we also have teachers who have been trained to listen and to help.  If you see a green Stigma Free Zone on the door of a teacher, you know that they are trained and willing to listen and to help.
