Attention 8th Grade Parents

The 8th grade Recognition Ceremony will be on Friday, June 1 at 6:30pm in the HS gym. Please have your student in line and ready to walk at 6:15pm. 

The Sound to Sea field trip is an exciting grade-level Earth Science experience our students have enjoyed annually for the past 10 years! It is the only curriculum-based, entire grade-level field trip offered throughout the 4 years of high school. In the past, this trip has always occurred in the spring. For several reasons, we have decided to permanently move it to the fall. This means there will be a quick turnaround on forms and payments at the beginning of the next school year and we didn’t want it to be an unexpected expense. The trip dates will be October 1-3, 2018 and October 22-24, 2018. The students will be placed on their specific trip after all the forms have been turned in and parents will be notified by the teacher as to which trip they will be on. The total cost of the trip will be $350. To help with financial planning, these are the key payment dates:

  • Initial payment (non-refundable): $150 will be due August 30, 2018
  • Final payment: $200 will be due September 20, 2018

We are excited for your students to join us for this wonderful experience. If you have any questions, please contact Joanne Wilson (
