Other Bits of Information
Enrichment Cluster Donations:As mentioned yesterday in an email, our Enrichment Cluster have begun. Mrs. Greene’s cluster, Do It Yourself, is looking for glass or plastic jars/containers with covers. These may be dropped off in the library.
Yearbook Photos: Your help is needed. The yearbook is currently in the design phase and the yearbook committee could really use your assistance. If you have any photos you’ve taken throughout the school year we’d love to include them in the book. Any submissions are greatly appreciated to make for a complete representation of the school year. Anything from school events like Oktoberfest, town meetings, extended day, etc. to classroom candids and lunch visits are welcomed. It’s very easy/secure to upload images to the enclosed dropbox link: https://www.dropbox.com/request/EDFkkDFYQ9FyG5azmmcg. If you have any questions or having technical issues, please email Yearbook Chair, Joshua Brown at email@example.com.
