At our next meeting, Ms. Vargas will be speaking about all the things parents need to know about social media and their middle schooler! Please join us on Tuesday, February 5 at 7:00 p.m. in the school library.

It's time for Winter Conferences!

On Thursday, February 7 and Wednesday, February 13, you can schedule a time to meet with your student's teachers to discuss academics or touch base about other issues impacting your student. Use this link to schedule online:

7th and 8th Grade Dodge Ball Tournament!

On Friday, February 22 from 3:45-5:30 p.m., there will be a dodge ball tournament for 7th and 8th graders!

If your son or daughter is interested in playing, all they need to do is show up! If your student has no interest in playing, no problem! They can still come and watch their classmates battle it out! Admission will be $3.00 for participants and spectators. Concessions will be on sale during the event!

Box Tops Winter Contest Ends February 28!

The Winter Box Tops Challenge ends on February 28! The grade level bringing in the most Box Tops will receive a popcorn party!

Heather Ray has organized this fundraiser for the past several years. Her youngest will move on to the high school next year so we are looking for someone willing to take over. This fundraiser is not complicated and can be done from home. If you are interested, please contact Heather.

First Friday - rescheduled!

Our First Friday celebration for February is being rescheduled. As soon as a make up day has been determined, we will get the word out to you and your students!

Save the Date: Shamrock Shindig is March 15!

The Shamrock Shindig is an all school dance! All sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students are invited! They can come dance to great music (or maybe just listen) and hang out with friends! Look for more details in the March Newsletter.

Looking ahead...
