The Mark Twain east parking lot will be undergoing construction beginning today and will continue for the next couple of weeks. There are areas where concrete has been removed for the installation of wiring for new parking lot lights. The areas will be marked with cones. Please stay away from these areas so you do not damage your vehicle. Please avoid the east entrance off of the gravel road. Please pass this information to athletes coming on campus for weight lifting or summer practices.

Next years 4th through 9th graders visited the library today to select books. They also received their goody bag for summer reading. The reading log they need to fill it is inside their bag. They are to log their books on the paper and in the online program. Let us or the library know if you have any questions. Thank you for letting us take them! It was a fun trip! #ourfuturessobrightwegottahaveshades
