Seventh Period is Up and Running

Seventh Period is a great  opportunity for students to receive extra help completing homework or missing assignments from 2:40 PM – 3:30 PM, Monday through Thursday each week. Students attending 7th  Period should go to the cafeteria right after the final bell, before 2:40 PM. Students need to sign-in with one of the teachers present. Once signed in, students will go to a classroom to work on homework or missing assignments.  Seventh Period ends at 3:30 PM, so parents need to make arrangements to pick up their student by the front doors. If you have questions about seventh period please contact Mr. Fawcett or Mr. Griffith.
