Marksmen Minute

A Look Ahead to the Week

Washington DC Trip Week

8th Graders, this is your week to get ready and roll out to Washington DC. It's a great trip where you get the chance to see the nation's capital in person. Enjoy the sights, sounds, history, food, walking, bus smells, and memories that you'll be making.

Welcome 6th Graders!

We know it's rather late in the school year, but it's never too late to include more people in the Marksmen Minute! That's right, this is officially the first issue of the Marksmen Minute that will be sent out to the 6th Graders. We figured that you will be here is a good time to start learning about this place. Below you'll find important announcements, activities, lunch menus, and other fun stuff! Enjoy your free, weekly subscription to the Marksmen Minute!

National Star Wars Day

May the 4th be with everyone! That's right, National Star Wars day is here this week, and with the new movie being out, and many more on the way, this should be an exciting one.
