QUOTE OF THE DAY
“You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.” -Dr. Seuss
Congratulations to the Boy’s Tennis Team on their wins against Commack. There were some very close matches.
Congratulations to the Girls’ Softball team on their 18-2 opening-day victory. The team started out just as they left off last season continuing their winning ways. Excellent pitching and wonderful catching shone especially bright along with great offense and defense. The Captains provided the on-field leadership and all-around star power. A full team effort and lots of fun were had by all.

New Chrome Depot Policy
Charging the Chromebook and bringing it to school is the responsibility of each student. Many students abuse the loaner system of the Chrome Depot by failing to charge their own device or failing to bring it to school. From now on, if you need to borrow a Chromebook because your device is at home or not charged more than once in a week, disciplinary consequences may follow. See Mr. Colfer in the Chrome Depot if you have any questions.
