Wednesday announcements

December 12, 2007

Today is Wednesday, December 12, and it is an A day.

We will have our Winter Wonderland Dance on Friday from 2:30-4:00. Cost will be $3.00. We are selling roses to be delivered to students during 6th hour on Friday. The cost is $2.00 per rose. Pictures will also be sold at the dance. Costs range from $2.00 to $7.50 for packages of pictures. We are looking forward to having fun! Activity buses will be running, but will be crowded, so students are encouraged to carpool.

Parents, we will be sending a form home with students today for information about Immigrant Education Programs. The form asks that if your child was born outside the 50 states, D.C, Puerto Rico or the Virgin Islands AND is enrolled for the first time in a US school ON or AFTER September 30, 2004, you will need to return this form to school by December 18th. Questions can be answered at 525-3060 by Arlene Barewin.

Parents who were not able to attend the 6th grade computer training may go to Franklin on Thursday from 5:30-7:00. Several questions that came up were about funding of the program. The computers are available to us as a result of a state grant written by district technology personnel, in conjunction with LMS educators and other district personnel. The grant was very competitive, and District 186 was a fortunate recipient of the computers and professional training for our teachers. Our fall fundraiser paid for the computer carts which house and charge the computers. The education of our students is enhanced daily by the addition of our new computers!

Are you interested in culture or history? The African American History Club will start on Friday from 2:30-4:00. The club will focus on the highlights of black achievement. Anyone from the student body can attend.
