6th Grade Beginning Band Rehearsal
There is 6th Grade Combined Band Rehearsal happening now!  If you are in 6th Grade Band, you shouldn't be reading this! 

Fire Drill Friday
We will have our first all-school Fire Drill on Friday.  Please go to your assigned House and grade level location.  If you were at Little 8 for basketball or cheerleading and missed our practice, please pay special attention to where your advisory goes.  Please remember that silence is the key to keeping everyone safe in case we need to look for someone.

DoSomething Food Drive
We are collecting non-perishable food items for the HS Club, DoSomething.  Please contribute to this drive to help those in need (and collect points for your House that will be added to Field Day).

Grading and Reporting Student Survey
We will all now take the Grading and Reporting Student Survey. This is your chance to be honest about how the changes in both how we determine grades and how we report out about them has affected you.  Please adhere to the following guidelines:
- do the survey on your own
- be respectful of others who are still taking the survey after you are done
- be honest

Please know that the surveys are anonymous and will help us to determine best next steps. Please now go to your Inbox and click on the link that was sent to you.
