The rising 6th graders visited Allendale-Fairfax Middle School, where they were welcomed by Principal Dr. Dandy, staff, and students. The students were able to ask questions about the school, complete a student-led tour, and meet teachers and staff. They were engaged with a scavenger hunt and Kahoot game, and left feeling more prepared for the transition to the middle school.

We would like to thank the community for their input on our calendar survey. Approximately 70% of votes were in favor of option one. The modified school calendar focuses on student readiness for learning and gives additional time to focus on their strengths, passions, and mental health. It provides an opportunity for students to recover learning and teachers to recharge during intercession breaks. We look forward to great success during the 2024-2025 school year as we continue the implementation of the modified calendar.
