Giant A+ Rewards:
This program was developed by Giant Foods Corporation to assist schools in fulfilling their educational needs. Each time a supporter (parent) shops at any participating Giant Store using her/his Bonus Card from October until April, our school earns A+ school rewards which translates into cash that our school can use for the benefit of students. Each year a committee of students, parents, teachers, and support staff meet to determine how to spend the money earned.
Booster Clubs support and advance the moral, academic, and education interests of the various student activities. They provide programs and financial assistance for the students. For parents and the community, these organizations increase involvements, awareness, participation, and most importantly, communication. This is accomplished through various fund-raising projects as well as through informal support from an enthusiastic group of interested members. Additionally, parents and community members sit on the District Professional Education, Induction, Excellence in Education, and Supervision Committees.
Vo-Ag Advisory Council:
This high school organization meets several times a year. The council is limited to a maximum of nine individuals (parents & community members) from the agri-science sector.
