I would like to thank all the parents, volunteers, and teachers for making our first PBIS Carnival this past Friday a success. The kids had a great time!
Students we have several Library books missing. Please look around your house, under your bed, in your closet, and in that special place where you sweep everything when you are told to clean your room. We need all Library books returned.
Yearbooks will be distributed on Monday, May 21st. If you have not finished payment of your child’s yearbook, then you need to do so. If your child did not purchase a yearbook, then once they are distributed they can purchase one. The cost is $55.00 in cash only. There will be a limited supply and 8th graders get first chance to purchase.
