4. Grades 6, 7, and 8 will leave for EHS tomorrow morning right after morning announcements to attend “The Little Mermaid” at EHS. Grade 5 will go next Thursday.
5. Tomorrow is our December activity night. Please dress in accordance with our dress code, and please stay within bounds with regard to public displays of affection. Holding hands, dancing together, putting an arm around each other is okay. Kissing is not okay. You will be going home if this takes place. Please share that with your friends who are coming from out of town to this event. Thanks.
This activity night is a fundraiser for our 8th grade’s class trip, and we are in need of a few more parents of 8th graders to help chaperone. A couple of 8th graders are needed to help out at the early dance, too. One or two are needed to referee indoor soccer and one or two are needed to run the concession stand. Please let Mr. Newett know if you can help out.
6. Our Winter Concert is on December 7, one week from this Thursday. Beginner band (grade 5), Concert Band (grades 6-8), and Chorus (grades 5-8) will be performing. The concert starts at 6:30 PM.
