The winner of the school contest will be advanced to compete at the district level.
- Term 1 ends on October 29th, please sit down with your child and take a look at their current grades and make a plan for a strong finish. Any grade that is marked I or F is a failing grade. As your student is working to address their grades and learning, Canvas courses are the first place to start. If your child still needs support, teachers are standing by to help.
- With cold, allergy and flu season compounding COVID concerns, you may be asking, "Should I send my child to school today?" Remember that students, teachers and employees who are sick should NOT come to school if they have shortness of breath, sore throat or a cough, temp over 100.4 with no fever reducing meds, congestion or runny nose, vomiting or diarrhea or a new loss of taste or smell. Students with any of these symptoms may need to be tested.
