 All students are invited to a Back To School Day on Thursday August 9, 2018 from 1:00pm – 6:00pm at school. Here are some things you can do during this time period. You and your student can drop in at any time during these hours. 

  • Class Schedules. Pick up your schedules and talk to your counselor if there is a conflict or problem. Also walk the halls to find our classes.
  • Locker assignments.  Get your locker number and go find it.
  • Clubs, Sports and Student Groups sign ups. The best way for new students to meet new friends and become part of the Eagle family is to get involved in clubs, sports etc. Studies also show students who are involved perform better academically.  
  • Class material lists (some teachers may have certain materials they require for their classes)
  • Eagle Gear.  Get your student decked out in all the latest Eagle Gear (shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, sweatpants etc) beginning at 3:30pm
