· This weekend everyone is invited to Baccalaureate, a non-denominational ceremony, recognizing graduates on Sunday, May 15, 3:00 p.m. at Church Street United Methodist Church. All are welcome!
· The leadership class participated in a project to beautify our campus. Please notice the path and newly planted flowers in the outdoor classroom and the fresh mulch surrounding the flagpole area. The class also trimmed the bushes in front of the depot, planted flower seeds, and lay down a path to cross within the mulch. The leadership class would love it if everyone took notice of their hard work and used the new paths.
