Week of February 11-15, 2019

A Note from Mrs. Grant

Can you believe it is February already? I feel like the year has flown by! This week there is a PTO meeting on Tuesday, February 12. We will be discussing the Auction on March 2nd. I hope to see you all there!

            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, our Snack Shack managers are Mercedes Rush and Heyward Blakely. 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!
