We will be selecting two new student representatives to the Board of Trustees for next school year. Please email Board President, Mrs. Mitchell, at and Mr. Donnelly if you are interested.  The process will be a short 10-15 minutes interview with a small group of board members and Mr. Donnelly.  Two students will be selected and notified within the month. Requirements would be attendance at monthly board meetings and giving a student report during these meetings. Board reps will also be part of the Student Council.  (You would only be required to attend one meeting a month, but more if you prefer)
