Announcements for 8/31

August 31, 2011

Good morning, today is Wednesday, August 31st, and it is a B Day for everyone!

Girls on Track forms are due to Mrs. Wickham today. Please hand those in as the fun activities begin next week on Tuesday when we return from Labor Day weekend. Girls should bring comfortable clothes and tennis shoes. Sessions will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays of each week and will begin with a snack, some stretching, and team-building activities that help girls learn to make good choices and grow as responsible young ladies. If you have questions, see Mrs. Wickham. If you would like to attend just the first session for free to see if this is something in which you're interested, please join us!

7th and 8th grade girls, there will be a cheerleading sign up in the lunch room during your lunch period Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of this week. Tryouts will be after school next week. So Please listen for announcements for those dates and times.
