Hey parents! We still need your awesome photos for the yearbook. Upload to the link below.
We need field trips, carnival night, Chili/Bingo night, Soccer, Volleyball, Basketball, Cross Country, band, orchestra, dances, parties, Movie night, Night of the Notables and anything else that happened this year that you caught in pictures.
Deadline is March 11th.
Also if you haven't ordered your yearbook yet, all orders need to go through Zandra in the front office. That deadline is March 15th.
Thanks for your help!

Students need to continue writing in their home writer's notebook.  As a reminder, this is a place to record thoughts, ideas, pondering, wondering, observations, etc. They need to write in it 2 times a week for 20 minutes each time, which should consist of a page. They may also type their entries, but the typed pages must be cut neatly and glued or taped into the notebook.  The next due date is this Friday, March 4.  They should have 15 more entries for a total of 45 entries.
I will put all homework assignments on my calendar at the bottom of the page. Please check it daily.
