Sal, Michelle is correct. The ads will really bother parents especially.

As a former art director and graphic designer (http://www.altmanink.com and
http://www.eanes.k12.tx.us/cce/laltman/default.HTM) who created web sites
for a living, here are my thoughts on the site itself:

While awards are nice, the viewer isn't really interested in that. You might
want to make them smaller.

Stick with one font, two at the most and be sure they are on most, if not
all computers. Arial is a good choice.

Since some of your pages are really long, you might want to put a "back"
button or a "up" to the top type button at the end of the page.

Using a white background is best on most sites. You obviously have a good
eye for design.

Your site is well organized and easy to navigate which is VERY important.

All sites need constant maintenance and no matter how much experience you
have, things will go wrong and not look at all like you expected. Or if you
have a school site, sometimes a "helpful" tech person will make and
adjustment that messes up the spacing. You will see that on my site if you
visit! I hope this helps. Keep up the good work. Your site is great and the
students will love it.
