  1. Fall Sports Parent Meeting – Monday, Sept. 11 at 6PM in the gym for parents of cross-country runners and soccer plays. Parents whose child is going to do both sports will meet at 5:45PM.


  1. Drama Club Tryouts – Auditions for the fall play take place next Monday and WEDNESDAY, Sept. 11 and 13, from 3-4:30 in the cafeteria. (Note: The permission form said auditions were Monday and Tuesday. That was an error. It’s Monday and Wednesday) Please get your permission form in to Mrs. Cox ahead of time or bring it to the audition. For auditions, you will be reading portions of the script as well as participating in several theater exercises. You are to bring a pencil, too. Students who plan to help backstage need to turn in the permission form but they do not need to go to auditions. The name of the fall show is “William Shakespeare’s Star Wars.”


  1. Nice Job, Again – Thanks for a great second day yesterday in the lunch room, at recess, and in the halls. It’s really been nice to have you pushing in your chairs when leaving the lunch room. Keep it going!


  1. Recess – If recess is inside today we can utilize the gym. Thursday is the only day of the week that it’s available to us
