Announcements for 3/5

March 5, 2014

Good morning, today is Wednesday, March 5, and it is a B Day for everyone!

Congratulations to the 7th grade volleyball team on their exciting victory of Franklin Middle School last night. They will play Quincy this evening for the Regional Championship.

The 8th grade volleyball team will begin regional play on March 11 against Grant Middle School. Game time is 5:00 p.m. Games will be played at Turner Jr. High in Jacksonville.

Students planning on participating in the track and field program must have a completed athletic card and physical by March 14, 2014. An athletic fee of $60 is also required, unless this fee has already been paid for participation in another sport (Cross-Country, 7th & 8th girls and boys basketball, and 7th & 8th volleyball). 
The athletic card verifies:
A physical exam
, Proof of school insurance or insurance, 
Knowledge of The Drug / Alcohol Policy. The first practice will be a student informational meeting on March 10. 2014 from 2:30-4:00 p.m. Students will have access to an activity bus.

The ISAT is just around the corner and the kids are gearing up for the ISAT.
The ISAT will be given March 5th - 11th. Please help make sure your child is at school, on time and well rested so that they can do their best.
In an effort to provide the best testing environment for our students, we are again asking for donations of snacks to give our students during the day.
Here is a list of some of the items we would like to offer:
**Bags of individually wrapped starlight mints**
Boxes of individually wrapped trail mix 
Boxes of individually wrapped granola bars 
Boxes of individually wrapped crackers with cheese
 Individually wrapped fruit snacks
 Individually wrapped cookies
* We also need snacks that are Peanut Allergy friendly and also friendly to those who have braces.
If you have other ideas we welcome snacks of all kinds.
We will accept these items any time before Thursday, February 27th.
Thank you in advance for your support!
