Family Night

We will have a Holiday Family Night on December 17 from 5:00-7:00. Alabama Power has provided holiday craft materials and we are working on getting Christmas treats ( like cookies) donated. There will be a booth set up for each grade level to manage and host. We just ask that your grade make a sign for your table and decorate it in any way that you choose. We will sign up for booths this week. This is a family event, Feel free to bring your own children if you wish... or if you have no other choice :O)

LLS Student Series Fundraiser

Over the next week we will participate in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Student Series Program. They will send us a Charlie Brown video about childhood cancer and we will participate in a fundraising event. Videos will also play on our DMS boards. Many of you may know that I have a friend who has been fighting breast cancer who also has a 6 year old daughter who is fighting Leukemia. When we were contacted by this program they asked if we had anyone that we would like to donate in honor of. I chose little Bryton. You can read her bio in the poster above. (I will let you (adults) know, Bryton is terminal, but we continue to pray for a miracle in her life) Bryton is a perfect example of a hero. I think that this season is a perfect time to teach our kids about generosity, compassion, and charity.

On FRIDAY during all lunch waves, we will participate in STUCK FOR A BUCK. Strips of duct tape will be sold for $1.00 each. I will let the kids ( and anyone else with a buck) stick to me the wall of the stage. A flier will go home tomorrow and I will do messengers each night this week. I hope that you will encourage your kiddos to bring in some bucks and participate in the fun.

If anyone has an extra roll of duct tape that you can donate to the cause it would be greatly appreciated!

EQT Testing Week

Let's work hard this week to remain focused and finish the 2nd quarter strong! Next week will bring many fun activities, but our EQT testing window will also take place during that time! Let me know if there is anything that I can do to help you as we finish up the first semester of 2015-2016!
