Wednesday announcements

February 21, 2007

Today is Wednesday, February 21, and it is an A Day.

The district writing assessments are coming up this week! In an effort to encourage students to do their best, we are offering a special celebration to those students who score a 6 or 7 (the highest scores possible) on these district assessments. Take your time to plan your writing, making sure to follow the rules of good writing for the genre of your prompt. Do your best!

The 6th grade Boys Basketball team will have their banquet on Wednesday at the old Shakey's in Town and Country shopping center (now Diamond's Buffet). It will start at 6:00. Cost is 25 cents per year of age for the players, but parents and guests are full-price. The boys are to bring in $5.00 to cover their cost. Please give your money to Mrs. Heyen today or tomorrow.
