Taste it Tuesday!

The wellness committee has planned for a Taste it Tuesday to happen on February 26th during the lunch times for all grades. We are serving Plantain chips (alternative is dried beet chip) for students to try something different. We have Trader Joe's Mascot coming in as well and a representative from Trader Joe's to talk about the nutrition in the health food they are trying.

Principal's Pen

The Symmes “Out of This World” Carnival is a little over a week away!

Please volunteer to help make our event a success!

We have a HUGE need for adult volunteers to assist with games. We have lots of teen volunteers, but we need more adults if we are going to be able to keep all the fun activities open!

We still need over 26 adults and 4 teens for the first shift (5:15-7:00), and 41 adults and 11 teens for the second shift (7:00-9:00). Please consider signing up for one shift to help this carnival be the most successful yet!
