Students kicked off the year with a tournament at Roosevelt, and will have three more oratorical face-offs between now and early May.

Harding Families – Students are in desperate need of loose lined paper and pencils. Supplies that were provided by the school for each student’s binder at the beginning of the year have been exhausted. Each student will need to bring in a supply of loose lined paper and pencils for the remainder of the year. Please have this provided for your student by next week. Thank you so much for your continued support!
