Principal's Message


Good afternoon, Spartan Families, 

We have almost completed the first ten days of this second semester where we are making adjustments to the student's schedules to ensure their success. 

We look forward to honoring the legacy of Dr. King tomorrow, with the observance of his birthday. School will be closed.  

Hybrid parent meetings will be scheduled in February since we have Open House this month. There will be a separate meeting for parents of seniors and for parent of 9th-11th grade students.

Information about tickets for graduation may be found below in the senior section of the newsletter. 
All Juniors and Seniors are encouraged to check the information in the Campbell News below for the Junior/Senior Prom. 

 Parents are reminded that students should not be dropped off before 7:30 AM unless it has been requested by a teacher or coach and they will remain with that adult. Students are also expected to leave the building no later than 4 PM unless they are under the supervision of a teacher or coach. 

Best regards,
Dr. Watkins
