A Note from Mrs. Grant

As this is the first week of Advent, we are all focusing on strengthening our relationship with God. This will be a busy week for sixth grade. Tomorrow, December 3rd, progress reports will go home in the Tuesday folder. Please review these with your child and discuss their goals for improvement.

Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. This week our Snack Shack managers are Camilla Salas and Connor Williamson. Snacks and the receipts must be brought in on Monday. Receipts for reimbursement can be brought to Mrs. Davis in the office with a note detailing it is for Snack Shack. There will be a schedule for January going home in the Tuesday folder in December. Please look for it. Thank you for your support!   

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!
