Snacks and Starbucks

Students will now be allowed to bring a healthy, bite-sized snack to school for 3rd period. This will help them stay focused throughout the morning. Please make sure snacks can be eaten with their fingers, don't require "prep" time and will not leave "evidence" on their work. Popcorn, grapes, granola bars, sliced apples etc would be good options. NO PEANUT PRODUCTS!

We have seen an increase in students bringing Starbucks or similar drinks to school in the mornings. Please remind students that these need to be finished before they come to class each morning.

STEM T-shirts

The STEM Booster club is doing a second order of STEM t-shirts. If you missed the first order, need a different size, or just want an additional shirts; orders will be accepted until Friday. We REALLY want students to have a STEM shirt to wear during all of the upcoming events. They are a great way to show pride in our program. Students received an order form on Friday, but just in case that didn't make it home, forms are attached: STEM T-shirt
