Yesterday, the Jefferson library received 72 new library books! Money to purchase these books came from the 2006 Tornado Relief Fund. This fund was started by Philadelphia 76er Andre Iguodala, a former Distict 186 student.

The new books will be on the long counter. Be sure to come to the library during your lunch and check out the new books.

Members of the Mayor's Book Club, Trickster's Choice, should meet with Mrs. Boosinger in the library during 8th grade lunch today.

In the next few days, Mrs. Boosinger will be coming to Language Arts classes to distribute certificates to those students who "exceeded" on the 2nd quarter expository writing test for the District.

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
