What's Happening

  BREAKING NEWS!!!

From the Principal's Office:
Good Afternoon Parents and Families,


Happy Monday and welcome back from the weekend!

End of Quarter Grades:
Next Monday, Dec 18th, is the last day for students to turn in work/assignments for this quarter’s classes. We want to make sure that student work is completed prior to our “end of quarter festivities” which will take place on Wednesday, December 20th.

If your child is missing work, please encourage him/her to come into our daily “Lunch Bunch” tutoring session to get help or to have time to study. Also, your child can attend “After School Homework Help” from 3-4 p.m. in the MS library.  We are down to “crunch time” and I would like to see EVERY one of our students pass all of their classes. Thank you in advance for your support in this area!

Spirit Week:
Next week will be a “spirit week” hosted by Student Council in preparation for the upcoming break. Following is the “dress-up” schedule for the week:

                Monday Dec 18:                                Red/Green Day

PBIS Assembly (Dec 20th):

Annual Movie Afternoon (Dec 20th):
After the assembly, we will also be hosting a movie party for all students who are in good academic standing. Students who are failing 1 or more classes will have this time as an opportunity to bring up their grades. If your child is currently failing classes, PLEASE encourage him/her to work hard this week so that they can participate in the festivities next Wednesday.

That’s all for now. Have a great week!!

Sincerely,


Jason Taylor

                                          STUDENT DROP OFF
Parents please utilize the drop off lanes when dropping off students unless you are planning to walk them to their building. Students are being dropped off in the parking lot which is creating a dangerous situation as they walk across the lanes of traffic. If you are walking your child to their school, please use the cross walk.
