School Pictures this Week!

School pictures will be in student's PE class this week (4/12, 4/13, 4/15, or 4/16 - whichever day students have their PE class). Please visit Newcomb Photo and use the code 58010X to pre-order pictures.

April 12 - April 16

Parents & Families,

With the start of a new semester comes a clean slate! All students start back at "square one" and have the opportunity to earn the grades - and finish the year - in a very positive way. Please encourage your student to get off on the right start to this quarter and end the school year well! Report cards will be sent out to home addresses this week.

What is better than Spirit Week? Multiple Spirit Weeks!!! We start Quarter 4 with Spirit Weeks. See below for information on what to wear on which days!

School Pictures will happen this week in PE classes when your student is on campus. And don't worry - Spirit Week dress-up days will not conflict with your awesome School Pictures!

If you were not able to give input on our Parent Schedule Survey, please do so by clicking here.

Lastly, great job with the Spring Fundraiser being put on by our PTSA. The last turn-ins will be this week on Thursday/Friday when students are on campus. There is still time to share that link with family and friends to earn funds for our school. If students do have order forms, have them bring them to their classes this week, and we will swing by to collect them!

Make it a great week!

-Mr. Sale

Family Character Dare - THE COLLABORATIVE COOK

Plan and cook a meal you've never tried before as a family. Make sure everyone helps create the meal and then sit and enjoy it together.

How many phases can you involve the whole family with? The shopping? The prepping? The cooking? The cleaning? At the end, give yourself a "Yelp Review" by assigning a number of stars and reviewing the atmosphere of the "restaurant." Have fun!
