Be sure to take a few moments and read this article, written by our Superintendent @WashCoSuper, that shares some very real and concerning challenges for many students in Southwest Virginia. Due to a "lack of equal access, an inequitable field of play has been inadvertently created in Virginia." https://cardinalnews.org/2024/05/24/leveling-the-playing-field-for-vhsl-competitions/

We still have spots available between 11:00-12:30 for the blood drive on May 30. It takes less than 15 minutes, and it's such a great cause. Each donation saves up to 3 lives and burns 500 calories! Not to mention cute shirts and snacks for all donors!

Families, We often take for granted the time that teachers spend with our children. However, it is in those moments that lifelong lessons are learned that leave a legacy. Please reach out to your child’s teachers to thank them for the legacy they are helping you build through empowering our most valuable resource; our children. Thank you, Dr. Perrigan
