Middle School Meeting- THIS TUESDAY
Tomorrow the middle school will be hosting a meeting for rising 6th grade parents from 6-7. We will be sending home YELLOW course recommendation forms and PURPLE course verification forms. If you see any errors, please indicate them on these sheets before they are turned in. It is asked that you bring these to the parent meeting tomorrow so you can understand what curriculum your child will be doing next year.
We have 27 students in the class if your child would like to bring in valentines this week on Valentines Day. The class list of names was sent home today to address their valentines. We do ask that they bring 1 for everyone in the class IF they are going to give our valentines. I also ask that they bring a bag or box to collect all of their valentines. Wear red for relay!
Wednesday, February 14, 2018. Please help support Dolvin’s Relay for Life Team and the American Cancer Society, by bringing in a $1 donation and wearing red!
The class with the most participation & donations wins a treat!
