Lincoln's Farewell Address on February 11th

February 6, 2009

On Wednesday, Feb. 11, the whole school will attend a special program at the Convention Center. The program will include President Lincoln's Farewell Address. There will also be music performances, and speakers. The weather is supposed to be mild, so we may walk. If the weather is bad, we will be shuttled over by buses ( one or two buses at a time).

The program will be from 10:30-11:30 or 12:00, so it could be 12:30 by the time we are back. Because of the overlap for lunch shifts, we are planning to offer pizza at $2.00 for 2 slices and a cup of lemonade. Additional drinks will be 25 cents, or students may purchase from the machines. Students may also pre-order a sack lunch from the cafeteria, or bring lunch from home. We will all be eating at the same time, from 12:30-1:00. Students must return their permission slips by Tuesday morning to be included in this event.
