Good Things

Students have done a fantastic job working hard over the past month to exhibit PRIDE characteristics and earn PRIDE tickets! We are so proud of our school. Every house was able to earn more than 500 tickets over the last month, and students have all earned your PRIDE incentive day during Falcon Time next Friday!

School Dance April 29

Mark your calendars! We are having our first DANCE of the year on Friday, April 29th from 6-8 PM in the commons! Tickets can be bought from Ms. Stephens in the office and are $5 if you are an ASB member and $7 if you are not. Tickets will not be sold at the door so you must buy them at the ASB window beforehand! It is TROPICAL themed, so wear your most festive tropical outfits and come dance with us! THANK you to all staff and parents who have volunteered! Ms. Duncan will contact you next week with more information about chaperoning! A reminder that if you have not yet volunteered this year in LWSD, you must 1) complete the volunteer application on the district website and 2) show your vaccination card beforehand at the district office or to one of our office staff. THANK YOU!!

Dance Pre-Sale Pizza Orders

For the dance on April 29th, TSA will be hosting a concession stand. We will be pre-selling pizza! We have learned from the long line and selling out at the last event. Any time between now and April 29th, you can go to Mrs. Stephens at the cashier window in the office and place your pizza order ahead of time. This will guarantee that there is a slice available for you at the dance with a much shorter line! You can pre-purchase your pizza for $2 a slice. We will be ordering both cheese and pepperoni.

Panorama Survey

The Panorama spring survey will be given to all students on Wednesday, April 27 during fourth period. We use the data at Finn Hill to measure growth in social and emotional learning as part of our school improvement plan. We will be analyzing the spring results and comparing them to the results we received in the fall.

The survey is anonymous, but if you would like to opt your child out of taking it, please reach out to your child's counselor via email to let her know of your wishes.
