Welcome to Week Three!

August 26, 2019


Welcome to Week Three!


This week is quieter week; however, there are some things to know about for in the next few days.


Don’t forget that Monday is make-up day for pictures. Remind your students to go to Tanner Hall during brunch if they were in need of a retake.


There is a show choir meeting on Wednesday after school in Tanner Hall for Major Minors. Remind you students if they have an interest. This is a great opportunity to participate and compete at the middle school level. It is also a great preparation for the Show Choir programs at Hart.


Next Monday is Labor Day so there is no school On September 2nd.


We also have our FALL BOOK FAIR beginning on September 3rd. Please encourage your students to participate by purchasing a book.


Our Back-to-School activities will be taking place on September 5th. That’s one week from this Thursday.


Have a great week!
