8th Grade Picture Day is Scheduled!

We have scheduled our 8th Grade Pictures for Tuesday, February 13th at Wredling. It is important to remember to follow the dress code (pg 4 of the Middle School Handbook) when choosing your child's outfit for the photos. Photos will be taken in the morning before the end of period 4 according to a set schedule.

Photos will be taken and packages will be sent to the school. They will be sent home with your student for your viewing and possible purchase. ALL PROOFS YOU DO NOT WISH TO PURCHASE MUST BE RETURNED. Retakes will be scheduled at a later date and you will need to return the original proofs.

Josh Drean Assembly

Wednesday our RedHawks participated in an assembly by Josh Drean who presented a positive message about respect, bullying and more! His magnetic personality and energetic way of working the room engaged our RedHawks for the entire presentation - in fact many students stayed for autographs and he was literally MOBBED by them in our hallway! We are grateful for his message and to our wonderful PTO for underwriting the cost of his visit.
