Student Mixer Canceled

The 2019 Senior Class has chosen to move the Student Mixer (previously scheduled for September 8) to a different date in the year given our early Homecoming dance schedule and an October dance hosted by our Spanish Club.


We will work to create an event this school year to replace the Mixer at a time that works better for the students and System.
