Happy Friday, Warrior Families!

This week was busy! The week started with 9th & 10th-grade students testing in PARCC, MAP, and Science. Our 11th & 12th-grade students visited museums, played Top Golf, and learned basic rescue techniques from DC Fire. Tonight we cap off the day with our senior prom!
