Spring has sprung!

I think the weather has really made a change for the better. With that comes warmer temperatures. Please remember to keep in mind our dress code as the days continue to get warmer. Here is a refresher on our dress code.

  • Shorts must be as long as your finger tips when your arms are at your sides
  • No tank tops or spaghetti straps
  • No undergarments showing

If you'd like to see the specifics of the dress code, please see page 4 of our Student Handbook which can be found in this link.

Google Expedition recap

Last Friday, due to the efforts of Mrs. Iwanski, we were fortunate to have Google Expedition visit our school. Below is a link to a Fox6 news story from our experience. I have also included a couple of pictures to share with you.

8th grade Poetry introduction

Our 8th graders are in the midst of a poetry unit. If you remember back to your school days and you're like me, you either loved poetry or you hated it. Well, Ms. Francoeur and Mrs. Hess harnessed their inner "Teach Like a Pirate" mojo to introduce the poetry unit for their students. Check out the video link below.
