We offer clubs and activities such as Student Council, Technology Club (Tech Squad), Performing Arts Club, Yearbook Club, Student Leadership Team and A Male and Female Mentoring Club to enhance social emotional learning and to increase overall student achievement.
Our students are recognized for their accomplishments on a monthly basis as Star Cougars of the Month, for Honor Roll, Good Citizenship and Perfect Attendance.
