What's happening in 8B?

Cookie dough money is due Wednesday, Oct. 28th! The top seller, top mini-school, top grade level, and top homeroom will all be recognized. Donations are also accepted.

Our annual Duck Race event will be this Friday. Students may donate $5.00 and receive a rubber duck to race against their classmates and an armband. The armband gets students outside free time in the afternoon. All students will get to go outside for part of the event even if no donation is made.
