7th Grade

We are continuing to prepare for our spring concert on May 1st. Uniform for the concert will be Tuxedos and dresses. After the concert we will be collecting the jacket and pants so we can dry clean them before the end of school. Please make plans to have a change of clothes for your student after the concert.

8th Grade

The Orlando trip is fast approaching. If you have not turned in your final payment please do so early this week. If the itinerary for the trip did not make it home, you can download it here:

We will be sending home medical forms at the end of the week. These forms must be filled out if your student takes prescription medicine only. Over the counter medicine (allergy, Tylenol, etc..) does not require this form. If your student does have an inhaler or epi pen they will carry it around with them, but they will need to fill out the form. We would appreciate it if you would go over the original trip packet with your student. If you have misplaced it you can download it here:

As we prepare for the Orlando trip we are in need of snacks and water for the bus. If you would like to donate snacks (packs of crackers, boxes of various chips) or flats of water please email Mr. Grimes. You can drop them off at the front office, but we like to let the office know that you are coming.

If you have any other questions about the trip please let us know.

This week in Band (Week of April 9th)

All Grades

 

We have testing this week. Due to a changing schedule each day for the next two weeks, we are asking that band students double check what days they have band. Everyone needs to make sure they have their instruments on class days. Our spring concert is quickly approaching (May 1st), and we want everyone to have the best chance to be prepared.
