 We are Proud to be a 5 Star School 

Dear Students,

It doesn’t matter if you’re a Freshman or a Senior, how this year plays out is up to you. High school is what you make it. Get involved! Whether you choose to do sports, band, art, book club, key club, National Honor society, BPA, FFA, cheer, dance, ballroom, the musical, or be the schools greatest fan, BE INVOLVED! Live life to the fullest! Be nice to your friends, family and everyone else. Do your homework. Help out at home. Get a part time job working a few hours a week. It builds a resume, a good work ethic, and you’ll have some money to spend. Be good and true and make smart decisions. Make your parents and teachers proud. Make yourself proud!

During times of trial, we are here to help. Your teachers, the secretaries, your counselor (Mr. Kimpel), and myself are always here to listen and offer support. We all love you and care about what happens in your life. We want what’s best for you. We want you to be happy and we are willing to help in any way we can. Please talk to us and let us know what we can do to help you be successful and happy.


Mr. Telford, Principal
