The dance on Monday evening is for 8th graders only.  The party is a Beach Theme and students may dress in "beachy" attire such as hawaiian shirts, shorts or dresses.  No swim suits.  Students are expected to meet the standard requirements of the dress code, including no skirts or dresses more than 2 inches above the knee, and shoulders must be covered.

On Wednesday morning, 8th graders will report to Butler Field House no later than 9:15 a.m.  Parents may not be asked to wait to enter until set up is complete. The ceremony will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. 

Details about all 8th grade activities were included in the blue packet you received two weeks ago.  Please refer to that packet for more specific information.

6th & 7th Grade Award Ceremonies
This year we will be holding the end of year award ceremonies on the last day of school. We would like to give friends and family an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of our students.  If you student is receiving an award, you received a post card last week inviting you to attend the ceremony.  The ceremonies will be held on campus.  You are invited to take your student with you after the ceremony if you are in attendance.

Course Selection & Parent Conferences
This week we will not offer any parent conferences.  Our teachers and administration will be highly focused on ensuring a safe and productive week for our students.  If you need to meet with an administrator or a teacher, please feel free to email, and they will schedule something for the first available date after we close school for the year.

FitnessGram Reports
FitnessGram Reports are presently being sent out to you via email.  It is a new system and we are currently working on printing paper copies of these reports for parents that request one.  Coach Fredericks or your child's PE teacher is your contact for FitnessGram Reports.

Parent Survey
If you haven't done so already, please take time to provide feedback to school administration.  We are interested in continuing to improve, but need to hear from you!
