Tea with Honey
Mr. Honey will be hosting “Tea with Honey” on Friday, May 9 at 8:00 am in the library. Parents are invited to come in and enjoy a nice cup of coffee and hear about end of the year activities and transitions.
Spring Book Fair
Please join us for our Spring Scholastic Book Fair, 5/19-5/23! We will be open in the Library Nonfiction Room during lunch and after school, as well as during the Open House on Wednesday, 5/21. For your convenience, you can also click HERE and do all your shopping online. Online orders will be delivered to students within a week of online orders closing on 5/30. This Spring, some teachers and administrators are supporting student reading by agreeing to some wacky stunts, depending on the level of book sales. So, supporting the Book Fair will be more fun than ever!
8th Grade Promotion Party
The first letter has been mailed announcing your child’s 8th grade promotion party! We hope you have received this letter and have marked the party date on your calendar! It’s going to be out of this world!
We need adult help and donations to make it a great party. An envelope was included with the letter for financial contributions: please send the envelopes back to the school office no later than March 31, that’s less than 2 weeks away!
If you have any questions, please contact Danielle Licon at [email protected]. Also, watch for special announcements about an 8th grade t-shirt design contest coming soon!
