Veteran's Day Bulletin Board
November 11 is Veteran's Day. The holiday honors those who have served in the military and made sacrifices for our country. A Newsela Text Set has been shared with staff to offer our students insight into the lives and experiences of veterans. The set includes poems about the difficulties of war, inspiring stories of veterans who have overcome hardships to find joy in their lives, and texts about the history of the holiday. The set and other teacher readings/activities will be used to draw connections to how we remember and honor veterans today.
By 4pm Wednesday, November 10, 2021, have the veteran in your family complete the attached Microsoft Form. The collected information will be shared with our students and posted on the Veteran's Day bulletin board in our A Building hallway.
Thanksgiving Turkey Drive (A drive through will be held to distribute items)
If you know of any family who needs support this holiday season and would welcome a Thanksgiving turkey and fixings, please contact our Social Worker, Zandra Vaughan. See below flyer for additional information.
National American Education Week (Student leaders are taking over!!!)
Celebrate public education and honor the individuals working to ensure that every student receives a quality education.
Please let the main office know if you would like to provide a special treat for the staff during that week.
Students!!! Kyra Bivins has presented the administration with a wonderful idea. Because we cannot have the usual community member to serve as Principal for a Day, let's have the students serve as Principal, Assistant Principal or Administrative Assistant for 4 days (Monday - Thursday). Of course, we agreed, but she had to plan and organize the event. Also, she would have to serve as the Principal for a Day all 4 days and rotate students in and out of the other positions during the 4 days.
Well, she has planned the event and is now opening up the positions.
Students, if you are interested in applying and interviewing to serve as an AP or Administrative Assistant (office manager) for a day, please by November 11th, complete the attached application. Teachers will give input in those being selected for an interview. Interview selections will be based on Will, Skill, and Thrill.
