Mark your summer calendars! Walk-through dates have been set. Students and their parent/guardian are invited to attend the date/time that works best for their family. August 20th, August 25th from 3pm to 7pm and August 27th 9am to 2pm.
Items to work on this summer- Students can prepare for opening a locker by purchasing a standard 3 number combination lock. They will need one for their gym locker anyway. 6th grade students will have a swimming unit as part of their gym class. As students grow over the summer be sure to have a swim suit that fits for your gym class. 6th grade students take a bike trip in October. All students attend the trip. A bike helmet is required. Be sure as summer comes to a close your bike and helmet are in good condition.
