MS Field Trip to See Wonder
Monday, December 4 MS students will attend Wonder at Northlake AMC. Wonder is a remarkable movie and we expect the film to reinforce the message of acceptance and tolerance. We encourage you to have a conversation with your student about the movie and the lessons they can learn. 

Students will eat lunch at school, although the time may be slightly different than their regularly scheduled lunch. Students whose families chose not to attend will remain at school and receive an alternative assignment. We are excited to share this remarkable movie with our middle school students!

DARE 5th Grade D.A.R.E Graduation
Please join us in celebrating on Friday, December 8 from 8:30am-10am your child's accomplishment of successfully completing the D.A.R.E program. We invite all parents and family to join us in honoring each graduate. Our time with Officer Bo has been wonderful so we are asking that each student bring in $1 so that we can buy Officer Bo a gift as a token of our appreciation.

Please contact your child's homeroom teacher with any questions you may have. We hope you will be able to attend!
