Wow the year is flying by. We have a couple of announcements for next week.
1. Attached is the new bell schedule that will begin Monday. We are going to implement our VIKES time at the end of the day. This is 30 minutes of time where students with late, missing, or current classwork can be completed with the support of our teachers. The majority of students will stay in their 7th period class, but we will have a few students travel to balance out the class sizes. We are hoping to have class sizes close to 25 students per class. Please see attachment for new bell schedule.
2. We have had a small outbreak in HEAD LICE this week, so we thought it would be important to inform our parents. Please check your student's head for lice over the weekend, so we can reduce the chances of large spread. I'm in the clear, I just gave a quick once over with my hand!
Have a great weekend and GO VIKES,
Week two is underway and there are a few items I need to share with you.
Item 1: 6th grade students that are interested in Band can speak with the counselor if they would like to substitute band with PE or the Exploratory Wheel. We really want to increase our 6th grade numbers.
Item 2: Tomorrow is picture day, so help your student with their hair so you can have that special scrap book picture.
Item 3: We have elected not to continue the magazine subscription fundraiser. Feedback was telling us people really didn't want magazines, but were simply trying to support the school. This year will be a Jog-O-Thon... Details will come out around the end of September.
Item 4: Who is Who in the office. Mrs. Watkins will be the 6th Grade Administrator, Mr. Horning will be the 7th grade Administrator, and Mr. Winston will be the 8th Grade Administrator. Please contact these individuals with your student needs.
Reminder to all that our Open House will be Monday, August 17th, from 4:30-6:30. You do not have to be here right at 4:30. We will have your student's schedule ready and their locker number. (6th Graders need to bring their own combination locks.)
2015-2016 athletics will begin with signups for cross country (grades 6-8), volleyball (grades 7-8), and football (grades 7-8).
