Pope Nation, we are asking for your support with one of our own...Christina Diaz, mother of Pope student, Sophia and Spanish teacher at Walton High School recently received a very severe colon cancer diagnosis...In order to provide unconditional support to her and her family, we are joining forces with our neighbors on Friday, September 2nd, when we square off in football to have a "Teal Out" to celebrate and honor the Diaz family...

We are asking the Pope community to support in a variety of ways:

1) Come to the game at Walton and cheer on Christina and family during a pregame recognition...

2) Purchase a T-Shirt for $10 the week of the Walton-Pope game...they will be on sale in the Pope Cafeteria on Tuesday (Aug. 30)Wednesday (Aug. 31)and Thursday (Sept. 1) during all lunches.

News Coverage of TEAM CHRISTINA


Students interested in the Governor’s Honors Program  should come to room 201 on September 12th at 3:35.

The Governor’s Honors Program is a residential summer program for gifted and talented high school students who will be rising juniors and seniors during the program. The program offers instruction that is significantly different from the typical high school classroom, and that is designed to provide students with academic, cultural, and social enrichment necessary to become the next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders.  GHP is held in mid-summer as a residential educational experience on a college or university campus. Students attend classes in the mornings and afternoons in specific areas of study, and they participate in a wide variety of social and instructional opportunities every evening. Meals and rooms are provided by the program with the only required/expected costs to the students being travel expenses to/from the interviews, a few basic school supplies, basics for their dorm rooms, and spending money as desired during the program.
