WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 19
Have you heard the latest? They opened up the sales window to give you one last chance to buy this year's yearbook.
You are in it! Probably several times. You'll want to look back at this year and all your friends and activities.
Plus....I heard a rumor that some of the teachers included their middle school pictures. Look at your Wrangler Time teacher right now. Can you picture him or her as a 7th grader?
This Friday, Feb. 21 is the last, last chance. Don't miss out!
Order forms are outside room 103 or you can order online by going to the CMS WEST website and then navigating to the YEARBOOK page under the ACTIVITIES tab.
