A Note from Mrs. Grant

This week we will have no special events. So we will continue to work hard before Thanksgiving break.

Snack Shack is going very well! Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. Our next Snack Shack manager is Zion Roberts. 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!
