Morning Announcements:
• Welcome Back to School!
We are all looking forward to a great school year! School will be dismissed at 1:30 PM every day this week.

• Open House
Tuesday night was our Open House! It was wonderful to see so many families in attendance. Be sure to look for the Open House pictures on our home page today.

• Dress Code
The enhanced dress code is a huge success! All of our students look so nice in their clothes. Mr. Zimmers has decided to allow white collared polo shirts in addition to the current yellow, navy blue and gray polo shirts. Remember — no neckties are to be worn. Also, if you wear a t-shirt under your polo shirt, the t-shirt must be tucked in. The t-shirt should not be showing. Keep up the good work!

• Bus Information
Students — Please check and know the two street names at the corner of your bus stop. Teachers will be asking you for this information on Friday during first hour.

Several forms that need to be signed and returned were sent home with your student on Tuesday, the first day of school. Please read, sign and return these forms as quickly as possible.
