April 17 Announcements


Attention 6th & 7th Graders:

Do you enjoy running long distance?  Is the mile run in PE your favorite thing ever?  If not, then Cross Country is probably not for you.  But if you do like to run long distance, and are interested in running on the Cross Country team next year, you must attend one of the two mandatory information meetings:

-Tuesday, April 29 @ 3:05 in Coach Williams' Room #111

-Wednesday, April 30 @ 7:30AM in Coach Williams' Room #111


Students will not be allowed to join the Cross Country team if they do not attend one of the two mandatory meetings.  See Coach Williams if you have any questions. 


Any student who was not screened for scoliosis should report to the nurse’s office during their P.E. period this week.  Report to your gym class first, dress out, and then come to the health room.  


PowerLine applications are available in the front office and are due to Mr. McInnish by Friday, April 18.  Be sure to include a current report card with your application.
