The Fall Season is upon us, which means colder temps. Which means a change in wardrobe. Reminder to read page 11 in your planner. A few reminders: No holes in jeans, leggins or tight do not count under torn jeans as a

cover-up. All coats, jackets and hats are to be placed in the locker and not worn in school. Pajamas/leisure pants are not acceptable as school attire.

TEEN READ WEEK is on it's way!! The theme this year is “IT CAME FROM THE LIBRARY!!” The library is sponsoring a contest for the best bookmark idea that uses that theme. It can be as creepy as you want. The winning bookmarks will be copied and used in the library and the winning artisst will receive a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble. We will have one winner from each grade.

REMINDER: Students planning to participate in Destination Imagination (DI) must turn in their commitment contracts to either Mrs. Schlake or Mrs. Wesch by Friday, October 12th … NO exception! If you have any questions before then about DI or finding a team please see Mrs. Wesch. If you need a commitment contract stop by the office to pick one up.
