Principal’s Update 5/23/16

1. Awards programs are this week! Post cards were sent home for any student who will receive an award. We would like all 8th graders to come to the Thursday evening program, if they are able.
The awards programs will be held in the gym. Parking for the awards programs is available on both the east and west sides of the building.
8th grade parents- We have lots of pictures for the awards program slide show. Thank you for sending them in. The slide show is done and ready to go!!

2. On Tuesday, May 31, students will have an opportunity to clean out their lockers in the morning. The 8th grade will have a cookout (they will be asked to bring in an item to share.) Then, after lunches, the 8th grade will report to the cafeteria for the talent show. It will be live-streamed to 7th grade classrooms.
