Return To School on
Jan. 3rd

Message from the Nurse  

We are collecting old eyeglasses to donate to the Lion's Club.
They brought in an expensive machine to help out with our
vision screenings.  The Lion's Club recycles the old glasses
to help people who cannot afford glasses. We will have a
box in the office next to the student phone to collect any donations. THANK YOU,  Nurse Neely

School Reminders:  
Our Tardy Bell rings at 7:50am. If your child comes into the school after 7:50am, he/she needs to report to the office for a tardy slip.  After 6 tardies, lunch detentions will be given for every tardy after until the new semester, when it starts over.

Our Pick up Bell rings at 2:38. By the time the students go to their locker and get outside, Its after 2:40.

                 Congratulations Frankie Vostatek on
qualifying for the national Rubik's Cube competition!   
Good Luck to Gabrielle Bodo who will be performing in  
a production of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker on December, 6th at the Capitol Musical Hall in Wheeling!
