Our school is taking part in the 2009 Texas Youth Risk Behavior Survey on Feb. 16, 2009. We would like all students in grades 9-12 to take part in the survey, but the survey is voluntary. Parents will need to sign permission slips in order for students to participate in the survey. If you would like to see the survey, a copy is available in the school office.
