Daily Announcements

Cancelled: TAG

Due to the impending storm, TAG on Friday, March 23rd, will be cancelled. 

Many teachers need to purchase food for cooking classes and the storm may make that difficult.  The other issue is once the storm clears, we have outside activities (hiking, biking, running) that will be affected. 

We are looking at the our calendar and hope to reschedule both sessions for the end of the year, when we have completed testing, field trips, and concerts. Hopefully we will be able to have TAG once again.

This year we have decided to turn the fundraising into a competition. Each student, in the cluster that earns the most money, will get a one-day lunch pass to eat lunch in whatever pod they would like.  This could be in the other house!!  Regardless if you win, your donations are going to support a wonderful cause.
