Thursday Announcements

March 15, 2007

Today is Thursday, March 15th, and it is a "no" day because of ISAT. We don't have Encore classes until Friday, which will be a "B" day.

6th grade parents: The 6th graders who have their computer paperwork turned in will be allowed to take their computers home today. They will be issued a "sleeve" to protect the computer, and a charger. They need to bring everything back tomorrow, as they will be using them in class. We are looking at the logistics of sending the computers home for spring break. The technology committee will determine the guidelines for taking them home for that extended time period.

Speaking of Friday, it will be the end of 3rd quarter...already! We will have a 1:30 dismissal that day, and will have our celebration from 12:30-1:30. The student will have choices about what activities to enjoy. We are hoping for nice weather so they can be outside!

We will have a sports' physical clinic at LMS on Wednesday, March 21 from 2:30-4:00. The cost will be $10.00, payable to LMS. Please call to reserve a slot! (525-3236)

The School Board has adopted an amended calendar due to the emergency days that have been used this year. Here are the changes:
Last day of 4th quarter-June 5. 90 minute attendance for students.
Students dismissed 60 minutes early on May 31, June 1 and June 4.

For those 6th grade parents who had to miss tonight's training, we will have optional dates for you soon. Keep watching the webpage!
