Get ready Titans!! This week is our Winter Spirit Week, Dec. 11th – 15th! Reminder that  Wednesday is white-out day, Santa’s workshop or red and green on Thursday, and lastly, ugly Christmas sweaters on Friday. Let’s deck those halls Titans!

Are you behind a few credits? Maybe you're feeling a little overwhelmed by so many classes, homework, and trying to also work after school. Or perhaps just the idea of a smaller school with class sizes of 15:1 sounds like a better fit for you. If any of these things apply to or interest you, please come and listen to more information about Lopez High School. A few students and the guidance counselor will be on campus to talk about: making up credits, smaller classes/school setting, shorter day, graduating on time or early, and catching up to transfer back. Join us in the Forum today, Tuesday December 12th from 11:45-12:30.
