All Grades:

Student Council: We have a meeting this Thursday, April 23 at 7:00 AM.  We need everybody to count money.


Buying your lunch?  Sometimes students forget to bring money for lunch.  Beginning Wednesday, April 15, you will have to have money in your lunch account or pay cash.


We want you to "Be REAL" about suicide prevention, so today our focus is on Respecting the physical, social, and emotional well-being of yourself and others. Growing up is not easy. You face many tough decisions and difficult life experiences that at times seem overwhelming. For some kids, a difficult, scary or threatening situation can cause so much distress that they start to think about killing themselves. Suicide is one of the leading causes of death for students in middle and high school and it can be prevented if adults and friends are aware of the warning signs and know what to do. To learn more about the warning signs of suicide, please visit the information booth in the cafeteria during your lunch period.


Just a reminder to bring your donation for the "Coins for Change" project this week.  All the proceeds will go to purchase animals for villages that are in need.  The animals will provide clothing, money for food, milk and eggs.  Please help poor communities all over the world with even the smallest donation.  Together we can make a difference!!
