Tacky Holiday Sweater Day – next Tuesday, Dec. 15
Congratulations to Mary Goggin for being chosen as Rotary Student of the Semester and for her chosen teacher, Dr. Scott!!! The selection of the recipient is based on these qualifications/criteria:
1. Academic achievement (Accomplishments) 2. Leadership (Character) 3. Service to school and community (Growth)
The motto of Rotary is “Service above Self”, therefore service to school and community should be the most significant of the three criteria.
Look out for a form from Ms. Cashin if you are ineterested in JV or Varsity tennis!

I cannot wait to see what he becomes, as he is a great Spartan!“–Josh Alexander, Head Coach, Varsity Football

Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 virus, the 2021 Youth Leadership Oconee class will be slightly different than years past. We will strictly enforce safety guidelines and will pivot if and when necessary to ensure the safety of all participants.
This year SENIORS will have priority access to the program, juniors are able to apply but due to a limited number of participant slots may not be selected.
All participants will be REQUIRED to wear a mask unless eating, drinking or outside with the ability to properly socially distance. Thank you for your cooperation as we try our best to ensure the safety of all participants.
*Safety protocol may change as new COVID-19 guidelines are released or reversed, please plan to be as flexible as possible.
You can use the link above to apply or stop by the Deans of Student Life office to pick up an application.
If you need the links to the at-home or return request forms, please email Ms. Rorey: email@example.com. Remember that you should expect to wait 24 hours before you are approved by the school. Therefore, do not submit the request late in the evening or early in the morning and assume that you will immediately have permission to attend online or return to school. Thank you!
Thank you so much for being diligent about wearing your masks! A few of you are still having trouble and for clarification, here is the process for you:
1. A faculty member will give you a warning.
2. After the warning, that faculty member will infract you and you will serve detention. This will be communicated to your parents as well.
3. After you serve detention, if another infraction occurs, you, your advisor, and your parents will meet with Mrs. Zalac and there will be escalated consequences.
