A Note from Miss Geene
On Monday, March 19th we will have a 2pm dismissal. This week we have our third Junior Achievement class. They will discuss how different jobs provide different monthly salaries. The students will evaluate these different monthly salaries to make good budget decisions.
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 our Snack Shack managers are Raelyn O’Briant and Harrison Reagan. Parents remember we still have plenty of snacks already so 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!
