Be Respectful, Be Excellent, Be Accepting, Be a Leader

This is a W Day.


8th Grade:

People who are physically fit, like athletes, have hearts that can pump about THREE times MORE blood than someone who isn't in shape! This is because regular physical activity increases the size and power of the heart muscle. Additionally, athletes typically have a slower resting pulse rate because their hearts are more efficient per pump.


Friday, March 24th is THE DAY to donate to Hoops for Heart.  Please make a donation to take part in the half-time festivities (where you can win prizes!).  You don't want to miss this!


All Grades:

Our next Green Team meeting is Thursday, March 16th, 3:00 - 4:15 pm.  We will meet in room 1116. We will continue to plan our Earth Week activities.


This Thursday is the next Student Council meeting in room 1122.  We are planning our spring fundraiser and events.  See you at 7:00 AM!!  


This Friday we will be recognizing all of the students that received a Be REAL in the month of February. We will be handing out the prize at lunches in the cafeteria. There will also be a drawing for a Grand Prize, one per grade level, which will be handed out as well. See you on Friday!
