  • A reminder to all 6th grade book club members that we are meeting today during your lunch. Bring your books and your lunches to the library.
  • Do you have any loose change in your pockets or locker? Let your change help make a change. The 8th grade is collecting change in the house areas, library, cafeteria and main office. Donations will be used to help change the lives of those affected by the hurricane and help our partner school, Taonga Pre-School in Africa. You can make a difference.
  • As most of you may know, Hurricane Florence hit North and South Carolina and caused millions of dollars in damage and food banks ran out of food. We are trying to collect food for people suffering. If you would like to donate, the food must be non-perishable. You can also donate pet items and human sanitary items, like toothbrushes, toothpaste, and other items like that. If you want to donate, put your food inside the boxes by each house.

  • Students, on this day 17 years ago, our country was attacked by a series of fours coordinated terrorist attacks. The attacks killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage. All of the staff in this building were alive and were affected by what happened that day. None of the students in this school were born yet. It is like when I was little and my school told me about the bombing of Pearl Harbor. We knew it was a very bad thing but we hadn't lived through it. Seventeen years ago, today was a very scary day. As we pause for a minute of silence today, please reflect about today and think about how you can make positive decisions and actions in your lives to help others.
