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.

 

 

 

THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW: 

 

HELP-A-THON: If you are going on the EXTRA Help-a-thon Field Trip, Mrs. Pfeifer sent you an email showing you assigned location. 

 

BE SURE TO WEAR WARM CLOTHES!  COAT AND LONG PANTS.  ALSO WEAR YOUR HELP-A-THON T-SHIRT

 

 

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.

 

 

THE VIEW FROM THE LMC: Looking for some slightly scary our suspenseful October reading. Mrs. Akers can guide you to books and authors who will leave you on the edge of your seat.  Let her know your genre and she can guide you to book recommendations or authors. Remember to tell her when you have read something great. She can pass it on to others.

 

 

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.

 

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.
