ONE LAST CHANCE!!!!! Student Material Pick-Up, Library Book Drop-off and Technology return

On Wednesday of this week, we will be collecting library books, technology and passing out student materials, including journals, artwork, and yearbooks if you previously purchased them. THIS WILL BE YOUR LAST CHANCE TO COLLECT THEM UNTIL AUGUST.


We have also been asked to store the items not collected until August, so it would help us greatly if someone came to collect your child's materials.


Wednesday, May 20th from 8:30-3:30 through the parent drive.


You can ask a neighbor or friend to collect your child's items if you cannot come at the designated times.


Thank you!
