CAN YOU BEAT THE BELL?!?!
Be in the school building before the 8:15am bell rings, and you will have no problem getting to class by 8:25am.
Students with no tardies will earn points towards homeroom competitions, and you may even get a shout out at lunch.
What are some ways you can BEAT THE BELL?
- Set your alarm so you have plenty of time to get to school by 8:15am.
- Before bedtime, put your book bag, Chromebook, & ID by the door so it's easy to grab on the way to school.
- Use your time wisely in the hallways & in between classes so you are engaged and ready to learn before the tardy bell rings.

We will have an optional dress down day on Fri, September 20, 2019. Students who would like to participate should bring $2 to donate to the PTA fund. As a reminder, students are expected to wear appropriate clothes on dress down days - no leggings, jeggings, or clothing with holes / faux holes.
We will also have a "Sno-Cone" student social on Friday, September 20, 2019, in the school cafeteria from 3:30-5:00 pm. It's a great time for the students to hang out and have fun with friends. The cost for the social is $3, which can be paid at the door. A DJ will play their favorite songs, and a photo booth with props will be available for fun pics. Students will receive 1 free sno-cone and can buy more during the dance for $1. Popcorn, pizza, drinks, and candy will also be sold during the social for $1 each. To make the social a success for the students, we need donations and volunteers before, during, and after the social. Please consider signing up to help. Thank you for your support!
