Ok.....Now that Ive had a second to catch my breath, lets talk about room 17.
There has been a lot going on in this important quarter including high school visits, shadow days, adjusting to the new block schedule and the general responsibilities of being an 8th grader.
So far the behavior has been OK, but can always improve. Please remember that all the younger kids look up to you and want to be like you. Set the example!!
The student council is set and they are coming up with some great ideas for the future. Keep it up!!
Please remember to turn in your Camp Maria slips and HSPT confirmation sheets.
Thank you very much to all the parents who came to the HS meeting. Im so sorry I couldnt be there, but I was REALLY under the weather.
