A Note from Mrs. Grant

We are now settling into our daily routine well and the students are excited for all the wonderful privileges that await them as sixth graders. Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. Snacks and the receipts must be brought in on Monday. Snack Shack will officially open on Friday, September 20th. Thank you for supporting the sixth grade in their business endeavor. I will be the first one to bring in snacks for this week.

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!
