PBS Tickets and Criteria
We are starting the tickets for PBS. You will receive 20 tickets per month. Please remember that the tickets are given to students who display extra efforts of making our school safe, responsible, and respectful. They are not to be given to students who get their work done, get a good grade, or homework completion. These are things that they should be responsible for on a daily basis.

We will have drawings for the Principal's Board the second and fourth Fridays beginning in October. We will not have drawings for the month of September. The Brave's Pride Store will open on the last Tuesday of every month beginning in September. There will be a sign up sheet in the office.

A phone extension list was recently placed in google drive and is also available on the website, so please "DO NOT" call the main office for extension numbers or to be transferred to other extensions. With this new phone system we are trying to eliminate some of the calls so we can answer calls from the staff that have emergencies and the parent and community phone calls as well.
