Kudos Korner from the Admin Team
Kudos to all the grade levels who had planning this week. We appreciate your meaningful conversations and hard work. We hope you enjoyed this time together and had very productive days!
Media Center News
District Assessments begin again on Monday, and the media center will be one of the testing locations. Normally, the media center does library inventory the last week of school, before the break, but since students will have limited access to the media center on from the 7th to the 10th, the media center will close to student checkout on the testing days for inventory to minimize limiting student access. Please watch for updates. We will reopen for student passes during those day as soon as inventory is complete. Please plan ahead and make sure that students who need a new book, come to the media center this week.
The Holiday Giving gifts are due by Wednesday December 14th.
Please wrap your gift and attach the red tag before turning it in to your grade level counselor.
Thank you for your participation in the luncheon it was great fun and wonderful way to get into the holiday mood! If you still have items you want to donate a basket is in my office and another basket in Adrienne's. Thanks you so much for supporting the Happy Elves.
Starting Monday the car rider door will remain locked with only the slide up. So please remember to bring your keys. Once the slide lock is installed on the lower level we will be locking that door too in the morning!
Please do not adjust the heat/AC thermostats in common areas, you may be warm..... but the room next door may be freezing.
