The following link will take you to our school's solar panel website.  

Once you are there, click on the orange link above the picture that says, "Show Solar Data".  This will take you to real-time data for the energy that our panel is generating.  There is data dating all the way back to October when our panel was initially installed, even though they just got the website going.  It is pretty neat to look at the weekly and monthly tabs, keeping in mind the weather changes we have had on a seasonal and daily basis.  


PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention System) Reminders: Students can only use cell phones and wear hats after school hours.  Also, gum can only be chewed outside of school not in the building.  This is a reminder to keep in mind the dress code.  Shorts must be finger tip length and tops must must have cap sleeves on the shoulder.  If you have any questions about the PBIS reminders, please contact a teacher.
