A Note from Miss Geene

This week we have our fifth Junior Achievement class on Friday afternoon. They will examine how a credit score is determined and learn about the consequences of positive and negative credit scores.

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 Owen Stikeleather and Isabel Storey 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!
