Week of March 18-22, 2019

A Note from Mrs. Grant

During this week, we will continue to celebrate the Lenten season. As we continue our Lenten journey this week, we will discuss fasting, almsgiving, and prayer.

This week we will have a 2pm dismissal on Monday. We will also have our second Junior Achievement class. Junior Achievement uses hands-on activities to help students understand how a business is run and how businesses in the United States affect the economy of the country and the world.  It is a good complement to our Business unit from the beginning of the year because it focuses on a variety of businesses each with a different service or product. The students will have Junior Achievement on Friday morning at 11am.

            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 mangers will be 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!
