Dear Panther Families,


Just a reminder there is no school Friday, 11/11 in honor of Veterans Day. Thank you to all the Veterans.


Our Honor Roll Celebration was today, so many students have been working hard and it was great to celebrate them. Many students were also right near the 3.5 GPA, please remind your students to be checking their Schoology often, and if they have missing assignments to get them turned in. All teachers will accept the work, even if it is late. Additionally, we have the after-school support sessions every Tuesday from 2:45-3:45 and Thursdays for Science from 2:45-3:45. Many staff members are willing to work with students at an alternative time if students reach out to them in advance.


Friday, 11/18 is Pajama Day. Students, staff, and any visitors are invited to come to school in comfy pajamas on Friday.
Mrs. Hackett and I are hosting a PAWS Hot Cocoa bar on Friday morning. We will be out in the quad from 7:20-7:45 with Hot Cocoa, and fun toppings. Students can use their PAWS Tickets to buy Hot Cocoa and various toppings. The Cocoa will be 5 tickets and the extras will range from 2-5 tickets. 

The District received additional home test kits to provide to our families. Although not mandatory, we will be providing each student with a home test kit during the week of November 14th with the recommendation for each student to test the weekend before returning to school on Monday, November 28, 2022. As a reminder, home test kits are available for pick up in all of the school offices, as well as the District Office. Students at the MS will receive their test kits on Wednesday during 6th period.


Have a great weekend!
