Kudos-Thank you to Mrs. Scruggs, our yearbook facilitator, and the student yearbook team for attending events and working hard to capture the memories of our inaugural year. We would also like to send a BIG SHOUT OUT to Dr. Duvall, along with our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade band students, for a fantastic winter band concert. These musicians did a great job and were the “first” to perform in our auditorium. Lastly, JOB WELL DONE to Mr. Hill, 7th grade AP, who works daily with WCPSS transportation team to ensure our students arrive and dismiss safely on our school buses.
