A Note from Miss Geene

We are now settling into our daily routine well and the students are excited for all the wonderful privileges that await them as fifth and sixth graders. The sixth graders have begun Snack Shack. Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. This week our Snack Shack managers are Joseph Hauk and Heyward Blakley. Snacks and the receipts must be brought in on Tuesday, October 9th. 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!
