WELCOME BACK to SRB!
Welcome back to all new and returning Bengals! I hope that everyone enjoyed a wonderful summer and has transitioned smoothly back to school. A special SRB welcome goes out to Vice-Principal Ken MacQueen who has joined our Administrative team this year. VP Steve Jackson and I are thrilled to still be at SRB and all three of us are looking forward to working together to serve this great community.
All students are encouraged to get involved with one or more of the many clubs, activities, sports and other events that are offered at SRB. We are such a dynamic school because we have so many opportunities that should interest and appeal to everyone. Our students come from all walks of life and represent many cultures and backgrounds with many different stories and experiences to share. It is important to remember that High School will be what YOU make of it. So try out for a sports team, audition for our drama productions, join a music band, Key Club, or make a pledge for the Grind, a fundraiser sponsored by Athletic Council. There is definitely something for everyone!

Without question, we cannot eliminate every threat and we hope one never arises, however, we can ensure that staff and students are properly prepared.
