Asthma Awareness- Fly the Flag
To kick off Asthma Awareness month, Girl Scout Troop #6450, would like to introduce you to the School Fly the Flag Program. The Fly the Flag Program uses colorful flags to help the school community be aware of daily air quality conditions. The flag colors correspond to the EPA's Air Quality index, which tell how clean or polluted the air is for that day. The porpose of the program is to help students continue to exercise while protecting their health when the air quality is unhealthy. Starting soon, Troop #6450 will be posting a flag on the cafeteria window. When you enter the cafeteria each day, you can see the Air Quality index rating! Together, we can be a happier, healthier school community!

8th Grade Dance May 8th
Students that take packets and refuse to take responsibility for return or money will not be allowed to attend the 8th grade dance or the spring fling events that all teams hold in late May. If you don't want your pictures at all, you won't sign for them and they'll be returned to the picture company. If you have any questions, ask in the office.
