Notifications and Changes

*Unity Day is Wednesday, 10/21. Please wear orange as we unite against bullying. You may wear jeans with your orange. Also, please have your class make unity links out of orange construction paper. We will hang these along the fence as we did last year. Finally, please plan to have your class outside at 2:30 pm for a group picture. We will make a circle to show our unity.

*Wednesday, 10/21 is also "Back to the Future Day." This is the date that was traveled to in the Back to the Future movie. The movie is not safe to show, but it may be fun to show clips or discuss how your students think things will be different in 30 years (the movie was released in 1985).

*Spirit Day is Friday, 10/23. You may wear jeans with your Merryhill shirt.

*Report cards are due Monday, 10/26. The grading period ends Friday, 10/23; there are 43 days this period. Please email Michelle or me when your report cards are complete so we can review them.
