Where do you want to see yourself in five years?  Either on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or in college.
What are your favorite hobbies?  I like running cross country, longboarding, and sleeping.
If you could have a conversation with anyone from history, who would it be and what would you ask them?  I would talk to Mr. Rogers, and ask for life advice and just to have a good conversation with him.

Student Jobs

The bell rings. Class is over for the day. Students start getting in their cars and driving home. Athletes and teachers are still at the school, but for the most part the school and its hallways are deserted. That makes you wonder: what are all the students doing? What do they do in their time that isn’t spent at school? One of the things that some students do is work.

Fall Band Concert

Submitted by tyler.lewis on Fri, 10/23/2020 - 13:32

Students go to band to be themselves and work hard at being the best they can be. They create wonderful music and perform to the best of their abilities. Mr. Hurst, the band director, makes the learning environment welcoming and fun. He pushes them to be the best they can be and all the students have been improving and growing. The program is a team effort. It doesn’t work well if they aren’t working together. Everyone puts in their time and practices, and the effort really shows when they perform.
