Grapevine Parade of Lights
The Grapevine Parade of Lights is being held on Thursday, December 4th on Main Street. Grapevine Middle School has an Engineering and Robotics float in the parade. Students are invited to accompany the float. This is completely OPTIONAL for students. They must have signed permission form to Mrs. Monson by Wednesday morning (during class is fine) Students will need to be dropped off at the designated spot (at Parade start) by 6:30p.m and must be picked up by 8:00 (at the end of the parade) Students should dress for the weather, but STEM shirts are encouraged! Students are encouraged to create and decorate a "gear" to carry. Students can work on these after school. Materials will be provided.
End of Semester

Thurs- 2nd, 3rd and 4th period exams, early release 12:15

PLEASE, PLEASE do not schedule appointments, or plan to leave town before exams are complete. Scores are factored into semester averages. Students should be getting information to review and prepare in the coming weeks. Help them remember to study a little each day, instead of cramming the night before. Also, give them time to relax and unwind. This is new, and can be very stressful. I am sure they will all do GREAT!
