Teachers ~ Please check to make sure all students are dressed appropriately. No hoodies are allowed in the classroom. T-shirts under uniform shirts should be white or the same color as the uniform shirt. Long sleeved shirts under short sleeved uniform shirts are not allowed.

School will be dismissed at 11 AM today. We will be having 1st, 2nd & 3rd hours only.

Our Science Fair will be held tonight from 6 - 7:30 PM in the gym. Please encourage your parents to come.

Congratulations to the 7th grade boys' basketball team on their 63-49 win over Chatham last night. Good job and good luck on your next game!

Beginning next week, we will be collecting money for families that have become homeless due to fires and other disasters. This is in connection with the American Red Cross and St. John's Hospital. Our goal is $1000. If we reach this goal, Mr. Holcomb and Mr. Zimmers will have to kiss a pig! Start bringing in those pennies, nickels, dimes, & quarters on Monday!

The following people have had their PRIDE cards drawn and may pick up their prize in the main office after school:

If you choose to come to school out of dress code, you will be issued an after school detention from 2:30-4 PM. For each hour of class that you miss because of being out of dress code, you will be issued an additional after school detention. You could possibly end up with 7 after school detentions!

Teachers — if there is a student in violation of the dress code, please fill out a minor referral and call for an escort to room 110.

Remember our school expectations:
Respect Yourself • Respect Others • Respect Property
