Would you like to purchase a yearbook for your student? Order forms went home last week in Friday folders but you can also click HERE to purchase online as well. A limited amount of extra order forms are available in the front office.
Yearbooks are $7 and arrive in May! The month of February is the only time during the school year we take orders - don't miss out! Last day to purchase is February 28th!
Summer will be here before you know it and what better way to make memories this summer than to head off to Six Flags! Did you know your student can earn a free ticket to Six Flags just by reading?? Students have until March 1st to log 6 hours of reading to get a FREE ticket for this summer. AND if 8 or more students per classroom participate, your classroom teacher gets a free ticket too! Turn in your reading logs to myself, Mrs. McKinzie, by March 1.
