The 8th graders are making snow ball launchers for Winter Studies. They began construction on Friday, January 17. Students are working in groups and are expected to bring in their own materials and tools for building. We will have one last afternoon to build this Friday.

Dress Code

Please keep in mind as your student leaves the house, that their dress attire needs to adhere to the school dress code. Please review the handbook link below.


In addition to the dress code, please keep in mind it is getting colder outside and students are required to go outside every day for recess and occasionally for class times. Please have them brink a coat to school with them.
