Next Tuesday, December 9, we are going to see the movie "Interstellar" at Ronnie's Plaza. The permission slip is linked HERE. We would like to have permission slips turned in by this Friday and if any of you would like to go as a chaperon, please let Melissa know (firstname.lastname@example.org). The cost of the trip is 10.00. We had mentioned this trip last month and we were finally able to make it happen. There is a link HERE explaining why the movie is PG-13. Paper copies of the permission slip will be coming home as well.
Our holiday family collection is going beautifully. We are currently at 1380.00 and, since the kids believe we will meet our 1500.00 goal this week, have decided to push for more. They are now trying to crack the 2000.00 threshold. If they are able to reach this new goal, they will be one of the five most successful Harmony Teams in terms of collecting.
Kids are gearing up for their 20% Time project pitches. Pitch Day is an exciting day for the kids as they get to show their idea and the thinking behind their idea, to a committee of adults. They will receive a lot of feedback about their ideas and, when Pitch Day is over, they will be off and running on their 20% Time projects.
Semester grades close on December 19. These grades are the final, permanent first semester grades. We are encouraging kids to check their grades and make sure that they know if they need to make up any assignments.
