Bonjour Leopards! Today is Wednesday, December 2nd. Let's make it a great day!

Happy Birthday to Drece D. & Alex T. (7th grade)... Enjoy your day guys!

Welcoming Ritual: Be optimistic!! Are you a glass ½ full or a glass ½ empty type of person? What keeps you from being the other one?

Attention 8th Graders!!- Superintendent's Roundtable is a group of appointed high schoolers who come back to middle school to give 8th graders the 4-1-1 on what to look forward to their freshman year. This year's visit will take place on Monday, December 7. Students will be given the option to attend one of two Zoom sessions, either 9:00-9:30 AM or 1:00-1:30 PM. This will count as student's attendance for the day. Check your email from Mrs. Sevener for more information.

Sports Update: Due to new mandates and regulations by the Governor, we will not have open gym or contact days in December. Our fingers are crossed that we will still get to have Boys Basketball and Girls Vollyeball start in January. Please remember that you must have an up-to-date physical to be on the team so if you have time, get it now, just in case ;)

ZOOM FATIGUE: Are you thinking... is it 1:30PM YET??? Zoom Fatigue is real! Please remember to use your 6 minutes to take a break, but don't be late for class ;). Also, check out this website for some ideas on how to combat Zoom Fatigue:  https://hbr.org/2020/04/how-to-combat-zoom-fatigue 

National Calendar Day: Today is "Special Education Day". On December 2nd, National Special Education Day commemorates the anniversary of the nation’s first federal special education law. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) was signed into law on December 2, 1972. IDEA made education available to all American children and this day honors the progress that has been made in special education.

"National Fritters Day": Fritters come in a variety of forms, from morsels dipped in flavorful batters to bits of dough stuffed or filled with delicious surprises. All of the varieties are deep-fried and served hot with dips, drips or dustings of seasonings, sweets or sauces. Found in cuisines all around the world, fritters are believed to have first been consumed by Ancient Romans. 



Winter Break begins on Tuesday, Dec. 22nd
