2023-24 Welcome

Greetings Wildcat Families,

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all new and returning Wildcats for the 2023-2024 school year.

It is a known fact that students who participate in Extracurricular and Cocurricular activities do better academically during the school year. We have a lot of activities to choose from like  Clubs, Drama, Music and Athletics. I think you will be able to find something of interest and have fun. All registrations are through Teamsnap, please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Thank you for your continued support and participation in our activities and I look forward to another great year. Go Wildcats!

John Rhoades
