Exploratory rotations

Next week, begins a new rotation for our Exploratory courses, which consist of Art, Drama, Music, and STEM. Please remind your child to check their schedule for their 2nd quarter course. All other courses for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders operate on a trimester schedule. Therefore, the official grade for 1st quarter exploratory classes will appear on the 1st Trimester Report Card. Grades in all classes are updated periodically and can be checked using PowerSchool at anytime.

Reminder - PSAT tomorrow at Lake Park for all 8th Grade students, as well as, any students taking 8th grade Math. Letter from Lake Park is still attached below if you need details.

Halloween Costumes

Students are able to dress up for Halloween on Wednesday, October 31st. We would like to remind the students to dress appropriately as stated in the Dress Code and to follow the guidelines listed below:

· Costume/Hair/Make-up must be completed prior to the arrival at school or entering the bus. Ex: No spray cans are allowed on the bus or at school.

· Costume accessories, if applicable, should not depict or display anything hurtful, harmful or have the opportunity to be utilized as a weapon.

· The classroom learning environment should not be compromised due to a student’s costume.

Have a wonderful weekend!
