Shark Bites

Informational bites to let you know what's going on!

Hello Shark Families,

I hope you've all had a great weekend with your families. Just a reminder that Spring Pictures are on Tuesday! Students may wear their appropriate springtime attire. As a reminder we have asked students not to wear athletic shorts or attire, others shorts and attire must be appropriate in length. If student prefers, jeans & spirit shirt or other preferred shirt are fine to wear. Also, please make sure all shoes are appropriate for PE as well. Virtual students are also invited for Spring Pictures, so make sure you've signed up for a time slot!


Also, coming up this week is course registration. Students will be participating in a virtual conference with the 6th or 7th grade counselor to learn more about course registration. The forms will then be coming home to you within a day or so after. For virtual students, the links were emailed out on Friday so that everyone has a chance to attend and ask questions.


Have a great 4-day week!

Courtney Rodriguez,

Principal
