Summer Book Exchange

The Super Summer Book Exchange starts on Tuesday. All you have to do is bring in gently used books from your home (up to 10). Then you will be able to choose some books that other students brought in. You can send in books anytime. What a simple way to get some new books to read this summer!

Don't forget to return library books too!

Attention - Geist 5K Runners

Race Day is Saturday, May 21, 2016

Starting time: 7:00 a.m.

Race day is almost here! Bibs and shirts will go home with students on May 18th. On race day we will meet at 6:30 a.m. in front of the Pizza Hut (corner of 116th & Olio) near the starting line for a group photo. It gets very crowded and busy and parking can be crazy, so allow lots of time to get to the starting line.

Let’s show our school spirit by wearing our Cardinal Runners shirt on race day! This will also allow us to very easy find our TCE runners and walkers. Additional race information can be found at
