The deadline for the SpeakUp Survey is THIS FRIDAY, DEC. 19. We really do not want to miss an opportunity to hear from our students, parents AND teachers about our instructional and technology needs, and this is a great way for you to do it.

Please take the few minutes to complete the survey by visiting http://www.speakup4schools.org/speakup2014/ and following the directions to select your category (parent, teacher, student, etc.), then select "Ligon" for the survey

IMPORTANT: Students must enter a password for access. That password is wake2014.


 A special thank you to Ms. Pinckney for organizing the "Ligon Goes Green" beautification project.
