Weekly News - May 13, 2022

Dear 7/8 Academy Families,


I want to give a huge congratulations to the 7/8 Academy Student Government for successfully organizing the Blood Drive and meeting their goal! Great work to all of the students involved with Student Government and the advisors, Mrs. Japinga and Mrs. Frantz.


As we near the end of the school year, please check your student’s grades in Skyward. 8th grade students will only be allowed to participate in Crossover and 8th grade Celebration if they meet the academic requirements by May 25th. Let’s all work together to support students in finishing the school year strong!


Have a great weekend,


Shannon Walker
