A Note from Mrs. Grant

This week is another short week as the student’s do not have school on Monday, February 3, 2020. I know the sixth graders will be happy to have our normal schedule back for this week.  

Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. This week our Snack Shack managers are Connor and Zion. 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. 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!
