We have one school district with 8 elementary schools (K-5th grade), 2 middle schools (6th-8th), and 1 high school with 3 different units. It's like having 3 high schools in one.

Our class is at Cairo Elementary, pronounced Kay-row. Sorry we don't have much information on our web site. Our district changed web servers this week and Mrs. Whitson has Book Fair going on, so she has not been able to switch everything over yet. Please check back in a few weeks.
