November 9, 2018
Today’s schedule is 3571
Red & Blue Renaissance card holders may leave 1-2 minutes early for lunch today.
The Book Fair begins this Friday in the library, room D1, and runs all next week. While we will have a broad selection of books including the latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid, we also carry diaries, stickers, toy kits, and more. The fair will be open all day, including before and after school, and during all lunches.
The library will not be doing regular checkouts during the fair, so if you need a library book to read during Thanksgiving break be sure to get one by this Thursday.
If you are an 8th grader and your parents are STILL interested in signing you up for the 2019 Spring Break Washington DC trip, you can still be registered online. Registrations for the 2019 trip for 8th graders will continue through December 22, 2018. After that, no more will be accepted. If you need information about the 2019 trip, go see Ms. Mankins in room H6.
Students--there is one of the lessons that you learned in Kindergarten that we need you to modify--Sharing. We know that it is nice to share with others, but there are some things that we don't want you to share....Germs! During this next season when colds and the flu get worse, we want to remind you about what you can do to stay healthy.
1. Don't allow friends (who may have picked their nose earlier)--to reach in to your chip bag and grab a handful of cheetos! Gross! An appropriate way to share would be to pour some in to their hand.
2. Don't "water-fall" drinks with other people. You may think it's a safe way to share, but you don't know if that person backwashes in to their gatorade & you may be getting some leftover broccoli from dinner last night--Do you even know if they brush their teeth? Gross!
3. Don't share hats or clothing. Head lice is legit.
4. Wash your hands-(or use hand sanitzer). All day long you touch door handles, desks, pencils, light switches, tables, etc. The best way to stay healthy is to wash often--especially after you use the bathroom! Gross!
Stay Healthy! Be Kind, but know you don't always have to share everything--especially Germs!
Just a reminder that breakfast food must stay in the cafeteria in the morning. If you are going to save an item such as a granola bar or pop tart for later in the morning, please put it away in your backpack before leaving the cafeteria in the morning.
Students--We are keeping track of attendance by grade level and are working on some great rewards for the grade level that has the best attendance. We are also going to take in to account if students attend a Saturday Academy & give additional credit for those students who made up absences on those days! Also--we are continuing our grade level challenge again this year.
If there is ONE day when every single student in a grade level is here--we have something special planned for your ENTIRE grade level. More information is coming soon--but bottom line....Be at school every day! Attendance today, equals Achievement tomorrow!
The big Blue Recycling containers around campus are NOT trashcans. Please do not put food or trash in them. They are for water bottles or aluminum cans only (no paper trash). The money that is collected from recycling goes directly back to students to sponsor events such as field trips. Please respect the blue bins.
Did you run out of paper? Forget your pencil at home? Never fear, the Student Store is here! Come down to the ASB office to purchase basic school supplies for only $0.25 or $0.50 each.
