If you are able to assist the PTSA with staffing a table at registration, please email and let them know what time you can help.  Even if it's just for an hour or two before or after you register your own students, it would be much appreciated.  Thanks!

In-person registration is required. If you are out of town and unable to make it on either of those dates, please check in with the front office as soon as you are back in town. 
Up to date school supply list here.  On a desktop computer, there are tabs along the bottom for each grade level as well as electives and World Languages.  Tabs are across the top on a mobile device.
