Auditions for Graded Performing Choir will happen today- Tuesday, August 6, starting at 3:15 pm in the Choir Room. -Ms. Mussete

Today in advisory you will receive a payment contract for our upcoming CWW trip.  Please have your parents sign it and return it to Suely as soon as possible.

When you need a Bus Pass, please bring Celio permission in writing before 2:00 pm.  After that, the Bus Pass, with your name on it, will be put on the Middle School board outside of Mr. Lippman's office.  Please leave the push pins on the board when you get your pass.

If you were absent, or didn't get the chance to add your class schedule to the Google calendar, please use this link for step by step guidance on how to add them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOs1HQlZ3hg

Please visit our Middle School Community Service and Clubs and Activities pages online to learn more about the opportunities for you to get involved after school.  Over 80% of our MS students last year participated in an after-school activity and reported that they enjoyed it.  We will discuss these opportunities more in Monday's Assembly next week.

This Friday we will roll out our Friday Activities offerings in assembly.  At the end of assembly, you will fill out a Google Form ranking your top five choices.  The idea is that you will either work collaboratively with others, work on a skill of some type, or spend  your time making a contribution to our community.  Please be reminded that this is an opportunity for growth (and reflection!).  The focus is not on being with your friends, but rather doing something new and meeting new people.

Have a great week!
