Middle School News, August 2, 2019

I recently heard that August is the ‘Sunday’ of the work/school week….nope, don’t believe it! There are 26 more days until the start of school for the year…enjoy every last one of them!!

Now, when I say enjoy, I do mean reading, writing and math should not take a break entirely….
