Every other week, we will sit down with some of our amazing support staff and get to know them better. Those featured in each bi-weekly piece include staff in Custodial Services, Security, Front Desk, Behind the scenes/Student Activities, and our Cafeteria. Be sure to check-in every other week to meet the staff members who do so much for us and our school.
