A Note from Miss Geene

This week is our Spring Music Concert on Thursday, May 17th. It will be at the USC Band Hall and the students must arrive at 6:30pm. The concert will begin at 7pm.  With only a few weeks left, please keep in mind this month is going to be our busiest yet. Let’s continue to work together to make the end of the year great!

Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. Snack Shack has been going well and the students are having a great time selling the snacks and seeing the results of their hard work on the financial report! This week Harrison Reagan and Aidan Dong will be Snack Shack managers. Parents we are running low on snacks so please help us purchase more. However, do not spend more than $10-$15 on snacks. Thank you for supporting the sixth grade in their business endeavor.

Below is a list of the students who are on Honor Guard this week. If your student is participating, they must stay until the end. Please do not pick them up during car line unless I have been given a note. Thank you for your support!
