This message is for parents/guardians of all current 8th graders. It is hard to believe that our 8th graders will soon be in high school! There is a mandatory high school registration meeting on Wednesday, February 20, at 6:30 PM in the gym. Students are encouraged to attend with their parent/guardian. During the meeting 8th grade counselor, Krisi Font, will go over high school information and families will receive folders with information about their student's assigned high school. This is an extremely important meeting as students will take these folders home following the meeting and make course selections for registration that will occur at the school beginning March 1.
During this meeting PTA will also be collecting money for the 8th grade dance. This money is used for refreshments, photo booth, decorations, and souvenir for each student. The PTA will cover the cost of the DJ. It is because of the generosity of our parents/guardians that we are able to provide this event at no cost to our students.
Reminder to all families, the 8th grade awards program and dance will be held on Friday, June 7, beginning at 6:00 PM. Again, this year families will be limited to 2 tickets. Any additional guests may watch the program in the Media Center. Students will be given 2 tickets the week prior to the awards program, with the exception of Track 2 students, who will get them prior to tracking out in May.
Have a great day,
NO SCHOOL MONDAY, November 12!
Our canned food drive is going well. Our goal is 6,000 canned food items and as of Friday we had collected 4,929 items. Many thanks to those who have already donated canned food items for those less fortunate in our community. Grow Our Kids will be picking up our canned food items on Thursday, November 15. I encourage you to send in canned food items on Wednesday, November 13 in hopes that we reach our goal. Thank you for your generosity.
Our gym floor is being replaced and therefore effective, Tuesday, November 13 and continuing through January 2019 we will not have access to our gym. Please encourage your student(s) to layer their clothing or bring hoodies/sweatpants for PE as those classes will be held outside on our fields and low ropes course as long as the temperature is around 40 or higher and we have no precipitation.
Mark your calendars: on Monday, November 19, prior to our PTA meeting we will have a physician here to talk with parents/guardians about concussions. This will begin promptly at 6:30 PM and the PTA will be providing pizza since we know it is a busy time of the year and yet this is such an important topic for so many. We look forward to seeing you.
