At this time,  online ordering is not available. Yearbooks are $40 and we accept cash, check, or money order. Forms and money should be turned in to Mrs. Lancaster.

    How to become a Canvas Parent observer:  
    Canvas is the program teachers use to post lesson plans and assignments. It is not Power School. Power School is for viewing grades. Becoming a parent observer on Canvas will allow you to see all the lesson plans, assignments, and due dates for all your students' classes. 
    On the Canvas page (, there is now a place for parents to sign up to become
    an observer. This will link you to to your student in Canvas. The only information they will need is:
    -student login
    -student password
    -parent's personal e-mail address
