This Friday is the last day of Term 2. Grades will close at 3:15 on Friday. Report cards (progress reports) will be mailed home next week. Please have kiddos check the portal to make sure they have everything turned in. We have been getting after kids to turn in all missing assignments.
We kicked off our Holiday Family service project today. Every year, we begin collecting donations for a family in need that we adopt for the holiday season. This year, we will be shooting for our standard goal of $1500.00. We have surpassed that goal every year for the last nine years. We are hoping to eclipse it again this year. We have to say that the kids seem especially motivated this year so we have very high hopes. This is such a good service project for the kids to really make a difference in a family's lives.
We will both be absent on Thursday and Friday to present a program on 20% Time at a conference in Illinois. This occurs two or three times per year and we like it because we get to talk about the amazing things these kids are doing during 20% Time.
Please be on the lookout for a TOP SECRET e-mail from Melissa's e-mail account. Every once in a while, a student hacks into their parent's e-mail account to find out the secret. Please do not let this happen. Our plan hinges on the kids being surprised so please be extra cautious. Thanks in advance!
