Another beautiful Friday! It's a good thing my golf clubs are at home in my garage or I could be very tempted... It sounds like a nice weekend also.
Picture Day: Today we had a busy morning as we had our picture day. We have a new photography company this year, Halverson Photo. They completed all of our pictures by 9:45 am. That is fast considering they had to take nearly 370 pictures. Picture re-take day will be October 27.
Extra Food Purchases at Lunch: Please be advised that our kitchen staff is now offering some extra items for students to purchase at lunch. The choices are healthy items that may include; sandwiches, yogurt, fruit, cereal bars, etc. I want everyone to be aware as you may want to discuss with your child if you want them to make this extra purchase as it will impact your family lunch balance.
Student Council: On Thursday we had an assembly in which our 8th grade student council candidates were able to speak with the student body about their goals for student council. The student body then voted for a president, vice-president, and secretary. I'm proud to announce our 2011.2012 student council officers:
Secretary: Megan Beckler and Monica Douglass
Vice-President: Daniel Goldsmith
President: Allison Devore
Congratulations to all of the candidates that ran for a student council position.
Kent Park: Next Friday (September 16) our 8th graders will be traveling to Kent Park for a day of outdoor learning and fun. 8th grade students will be bringing home a letter that explains the day. If you have questions about the day or would like to volunteer, please contact Jody Bandy, firstname.lastname@example.org.
