Good morning. I think this will be a pretty quiet week.

Picture day is this Wednesday so students may come out of uniform that day. Graduation pictures will be taken later in the year for the 8th graders in addition to these pictures.

For the 8th graders taking the high school prep class: don’t forget to bring the text for the class. We’re hoping that most of you were able to order the book. If we need to, we will make copies of the pages needed tomorrow for those who are still waiting for the book to arrive. The class starts at 3:15 and ends at 5:15. You may bring a snack to eat before class starts if you would like.

Week of September 13, 2021

My homeroom will be choosing their “homework buddies” today. The students will work it out with their buddy as to how the work will be delivered to the student who is not in school that day. Many of the students take a picture of what has to be done that night or actually bring the materials to their buddy’s home or send it with a younger sibling. With this system, the kids handle it on their own so there is no need to send an e-mail or call the office about homework being sent home. Each student will be responsible for their buddy’s work.

Reminder for 8th grade parents–information about the high school prep class was sent home last week.

6th Religion: starting a new chapter.

8th Religion: Chapter 1 test on Thursday.
