Middle School News October 17, 2019

Good evening, here’s some middle school news!

Grades were updated this past Wednesday, so this is a great time to sit with your middle school child to look at grades, missing assignments, etc.

October 25th will be a half day, with dismissal at 11:30a.m. A suggestion would be to talk to your child about options for them to occupy the afternoon. Last half day, several hundred students ended up on the fields behind the library.

The High School Student Council is excited to host the 2nd annual Haunted House andHaunted Hayride on Saturday, 10/26 from 4:30-8:00 PM. The hayride will begin at 6:00 PM. This year’s theme is Haunted Carnival! Please join us for a hayride, haunted house, concessions, games, costume contests, pumpkin painting, and much more!

December 13th will be our next Food Collection Community for the Community event.

PRIDE – Integrity: Demonstrate honesty. Being able to own your choices. To do the right thing when no one is looking.
