Attention Parents: As we head towards winter, still dealing with the pandemic, it’s more important than ever to keep an eye out for signs of depression, especially in teenagers. With so many things important to teenagers disrupted — school, seeing friends, sports, and other activities that shape identity — many kids are struggling, even those without a history of depression or anxiety.
Class Rings- 10th-grade students will be watching a short video in their Seminar classes with instructions to order. We have mailed students packets containing information and a ring sizer for them to determine their ring size so that they can order online. A ring designer on www.jostens.com will be used to design and order their rings. Should you have questions please contact Jostens using the above website.
