Hurry! Don't miss out! Last Chance!
The middle school yearbook staff is excited about the 2018 yearbook! They have been working hard to include all of the great stories and all of the students in this special keepsake. There is still time to order your yearbook if you have not already. From February 2nd – February 14th the yearbook will be available for $40. You can place your order by logging into your student's account and paying via RevTrak. Don’t miss out on your last chance to guarantee a 2018 yearbook for your child. There may be a very limited number of books for sale in May at an increased cost of $45, but order now to insure your child receives one. If you have already purchased a book, thank you! This year’s book is one you won’t want to miss!
Middle School Announcements
Click on this LINK to view the announcements that were read today to our middle school students.
We are pleased to offer digital sign-ups through Acuity Scheduling to arrange high school conference meetings with our teachers again this spring. Currently, teachers are making recommendations on each student's course progress reports and grades in Infinite Campus. When progress reports are prepared (by the start of the school day on 2/15/18), you will be able to check your Infinite Campus portals and grade report comments for each of your teen's classes.
If a conference is recommended by a teacher, or if you have topics you'd like to discuss with a specific teacher, you may go to the link for acuity scheduling to select your 10-minute appointment time on either February 22nd or 23rd. If a conference is not recommended, you do not need to attend or schedule any conference appointments unless you’d like to sit down with a specific teacher of your choice. If attending conferences, we do request that students attend along with parents/guardians as important participants in our conference meetings.
Once scheduled, you will receive an appointment confirmation for each conference meeting. You can save these right into your calendars of choice! Please arrive in our new cafeteria space a few minutes ahead of your conference appointments, and wait for your scheduled appointment at the entrance area before proceeding inside or to teacher tables for your meetings. This will help maintain privacy for families during their conference appointments with teachers. When you arrive, please have your conference schedule and teacher names(s) available so you know whom to see.
Thank you for planning ahead for our conferences. We hope this process continues to meet the needs of our students, families and staff. We appreciate your feedback to help us continually improve our conference offerings each year.

NEW Theater Auditions for Next HS Production "She Kills Monsters"
The Peak to Peak Theatre Department is excited to announce auditions for the High School Production of She Kills Monsters the Young Adventurers edition specifically adapted for High School performers. February 7th & 8th there will be fifteen minute audition slots available between 3:30 – 5:30 PM and can be signed up on the theatre bulletin board. All high school students are welcome to audition and no preparation is required.
The play is a comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story of high schooler. Agnes Evans as she deals with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and ’90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
The play is a great complement to the iROAR value of inclusion with themes that touch on anti-bullying, sibling estrangement, sexual identity, and self-discovery.
