ANNOUNCEMENTS Friday, October 9, 2015
It has been brought to our attention CPA students are participating in car rallies on the weekends. These are not only dangerous but often involve illegal activity. We will work with our local police in the event you are charged and consequences will also occur at school. If you are vandalizing other school properties than you can expect other schools will vandalize our school. We expect our students to make good life choices, set a good example in our community and to refrain from this illegal activity.
