Cardinal Calendar Sales
This is your last chance to get your Cardinal Calendar- they make great Christmas presents!
These sales support funding for student activities such as field trips, reward days and eighth-grade celebration.
As an incentive, for EACH calendar sold, your child's name will be entered in a raffle. For example: sell 27 calendars & you’re entered 27 times. You can win more than once. Prizes will be local gift cards. The top seller in the school will receive their entries in the raffle AND lunch with a friend delivered to the school. Sample calendars from past years are available to loan or for viewing at school.
Sale Dates: October 22-November 9
Delivery date: second week of December (Christmas Gifts!!)
Cost: $15 (includes pages of regional coupons)

Please return all order forms to your child's homeroom teacher or the office by Friday, November 9.
Dr. Smith did an all call for the whole district on the day prior to Parent/Teacher Conferences. This call also served as the test call for inclement weather. If you did not get the call or did not get it on the right phones, please let us know as soon as possible so we can get it fixed. We don't want anyone waiting at the bus stop on a snow day!Hopefully, you are getting the phone calls, but you could also be receiving the messages by text and not having to listen to me ramble on. Due to federal law, you have to give us permission to send you a text message and only about 30% of our families have opted in. Please see the document below to ensure you are getting all communications from HMS.
