Student Laptop Checkouts: Students who would like to checkout a laptop from the library to take home for homework should plan on coming to the library at the beginning of eighth period. Library staff needs time to verify parent/guardian permission and students need to log into the computer before they leave school so the computer can be used at home. Computers must be returned first thing in the morning when students enter the building or during Raptor Time.

New LEAP Activities: Sign up starts on September 20th in the activities office if interested. You must have a LEAP Permission slip on file to attend. Due to limited spots, please make sure that you are able to go before signing up. If you sign up and don’t show up, this takes away a spot from someone else that could have attended. If something comes up and you can’t attend, please let Mrs. Mohr know as soon as possible.
