This afternoon, students who met their goal on their NWEA tests in all four areas will be given the link to sign up to go bowling on our last day of school.  Tuesday, students who met their goal in three areas will have the opportunity to sign up.  If there is still room, Wednesday, we will offer this link to students who met their goal in two areas, until all slots are filled.
