Tuesday 05/22: Chef’s Choice


CAFE TIDBITS: Don’t forget, the number THREE is the magic number in a $2.55 MEAL DEAL - You must take an Entree… that can be the Entree of the Day OR one of the alternate options like a burger, slice of pizza and chicken sandwich...but YOU MUST ADD one MILK and at least ONE FRUIT or VEGETABLE to complete the $2.55 meal deal. Potato Chips, Bottled Water and Cookies are NOT in the standard meal deal. Be sure you discuss them with your parent BEFORE you add them to your plate for extra cost.


LUNCH CHARGES: Do you have lunch charges? Just a reminder that if you have a lunch charge you need to put money on your account immediately. Your parent can pay on EFunds or a check/ cash to the cafeteria at your next lunch.  If you do not get your charges paid you will be referred to the office to talk to Mr. Hoffman or Mr. Carter. Be sure and get them paid right away.





ALL PE STUDENTS - the LOST and FOUND in the PE LOCKER ROOMS is full. You have until WEDNESDAY to reclaim your stuff.




Detention Today: Mrs. Ogden's Room 210





THE VIEW FROM THE LMC: UNPAID FINES and UNRETURNED BOOKS may interfere with the fun things on your school calendar. Be sure to take care of your unfinished returns and fines.



FROM MR. HOFFMAN: If you are a bus rider, you must not leave school grounds before school or after school. No trips to the gas station or Jimmy John’s, even if you have a late bus.




If you are a student with an iPad... this announcement is for you. Your iPad is a learning AND communication device. Checking your email is a student responsibility. Not optional but an expectation.  PLEASE add an alarm to your iPad if you need one, but you need to check your email at the beginning and end of every school day - and more often, if possible.



FORGOTTEN ITEMS:  CHECK THE OFFICE SHELF. Instruments, PE CLOTHES, folders, and so much more. You may email your parent for forgotten items, but it is student responsibility to come and retrieve whatever has been brought in by a parent.  If your parent brings you a forgotten item, they can email you at [email protected]  Then come check the shelf, please.



LOST AND FOUND - is outside of the cafeteria doors across from the bathrooms. Look for your items. They are donated several times a year when the shelf is full. THAT SHELF IS NOT a place to put binders and iPads while you eat lunch. Binders and iPads MUST be in lockers during lunch.
