Online Registration for 2017-18 School Year Opens Monday
Greater Clark County Schools will open online registration for the 2017-18 school year on Monday, February 6th. Online registration, through the program InfoSnap, eases the completion and submission of a multitude of forms that are required to register your students with the district. Current students will need a password, also known as a Snapcode, to register online. Parents/guardians will receive a letter next week with their child's snapcode and you can access the snapcode in the Power School Parent Portal/Student Portal by selecting "Account Preferences." The snapcode will be displayed directly under "Account Preferences" once selected.

Mrs. Erin Cassady’s Culinary Arts students prepared several yummy dishes from the Harry Potter Cookbook and library aides set up crafts (pencil wand making and feather headbands) from the Harry Potter craft book in the Makerspace. Students spun to select their houses and their drinks of corresponding color from the drink table. Students enjoyed playing Harry Potter games and eight lucky students walked out with Harry Potter themed door prizes.
