We are very excited about the upcoming bond election and would like to share some information. The following video does a great job of explaining the proposal. Check it out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXDF6TVHMq4
As we get closer to the election, we want to inform everyone how the bond will impact their taxes. To calculate the impact of the bond on your taxes, take the taxable value of your home and multiply it by .0028 to find the annual cost. Be sure to use the taxable value from your Notice of Assessment. Click on the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IV0GFOiXwo

Mr. Verellen's Design and Engineering class has been hard at work preparing vehicles powered only by a mouse trap. Students have been experimenting and testing different designs in hopes of getting their vehicle to travel as far as possible. Students are only allowed to touch the vehicle at the starting point, and have used various materials, including CD's, string, metal rods, tape, and of course, mouse traps, to create the best performing design. They will be testing their final projects in the next few days.
