Next Tuesday is Pitch Day, one of the high-stakes days of our 20% Time projects. Kids will pitch their ideas to the committees. Each student will have five minutes to show their commercial, talk to the committee and answer questions. We expect that most kids will be very prepared for this event and will experience great success.
Our Holiday Family collection is up to 1453.82. This is an incredible effort by the kids and we will still collect through Monday. Any families that purchased items from the list should send those in by Monday. We will be wrapping gifts on Monday. If you have extra gift boxes, we could use them. Thanks for all of your help in making this a success. BTW, as part of our collection, we auctioned off the street signs in Eckert's room and the kids who won those may take them home at the end of the school year.
Grades close next Friday which is the end of the semester. The semester grade is a final grade and of course, no make-ups or redos can occur after that. Kids need to make sure that everything is turned in by then.
