National History Day
The National History Day competition is back and students have been working tirelessly to prepare for the big day! Students showcased their presentations in front of a panel of judges, hoping to advance to the next level. Each year, National History Day® frames students’ research within a historical theme. The theme is chosen for broad application to world, national, or state history and its relevance to ancient history or the more recent past. The 2022-2023 theme is Frontiers in History: People, Places, Ideas. Thank you to all the teachers, parents, and staff that helped our students prepare for the big event!
Congratulations to our winners!

One Book One School
We are excited to announce that we will once again be participating in “One Book, One School” by reading the novel, A Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds. Students that choose to participate will get a copy of the book, join a Google Classroom dedicated to this and engage in discussion and activities both online and in book clubs. We are encouraging all students to participate, however want you to know it is a novel based on the gun violence epidemic in America and contains some explicit language. Please read the summary below and follow this link for more information about the novel.
Will has known about the rules ever since his childhood friend was killed on the playground, and he’s followed the first two: no crying, and no snitching. When his older brother, Shawn, is shot and killed while walking home from the store, Will knows he is expected to follow the final rule and avenge his brother’s death. He knows where Shawn keeps his gun, and he thinks he knows who the shooter is: a member of a rival gang named Riggs. Even if Will has never used a gun—never even held a gun before—rules are rules. But in the elevator on the way down to meet Riggs, Will encounters family and friends who died playing by the rules, and now Will has to decide what he is going to do when the elevator reaches its final stop.
