A Note from Mrs. Grant

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a relaxing Easter Break! This week we will also have our last Junior Achievement class. During the lesson, students will learn that life involves risk and that insurance and personal responsibility help to reduce the financial consequences of loss or injury. The students will have Junior Achievement on Friday morning at 11am.

            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 Danny Cox and Micah Austin will be the Snack Shack managers. Parents remember we still have plenty of snacks already so do not spend more than $5-$10 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!
