Due to the several snow days we have experienced lately and the need to keep our students in the classroom, we have decided to cancel the 2nd marking period award assemblies. Students will still be recognized for their achievements and receive their certificates in their FLEX class.
Hi, 6th graders! Ms. G. here! After 3 more snow days, I've decided to offer the extra credit again! For those of you who have already completed 5 activities, you only need to do 3 more for more EC. Those who didn't do it last week need to complete 5. See Planbook, 2/8/19!
Are you getting tired of the schedule adjustment posts yet? I know I am. Here is the plan for next week. Mother Nature please cooperate!! Monday = Wednesday Block Tuesday = Thursday Block Wednesday and Thursday = Monday/Friday Schedule Friday = No School Mid-Winter Break (oh good, just what we need) P.S. - I will be asking the school board to invest in the type of bus in the attached image. :)
Happy Snow Day #10! We wanted to let everyone know that when we return to school tomorrow (hopefully) we will be running a Wednesday schedule. Friday will then be a Thursday schedule so that we don't miss any of the block days. See you tomorrow!!
Sunday, February 17th at Bay lanes students going to Washington DC or any 8th grader will have a Bowlathon to raise money for their trip from 12:00-3:00. Students earn 100% profit! The $6.00 fee for bowling and shoes is due by this Friday...February 8!
Just a friendly reminder that today (February 4th) is our last exam day and students will be dismissed at 10:30 am.

We will follow a normal schedule the rest of the week. Block days on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday with a regular schedule on Friday.
