Please remember

Students need to replace school supplies through the year as they are used up. We have nearly gone through our supply of pencils and highlighters for them to borrow.Students are responsible for classes they miss for school related events. They need to speak with each teacher and get any work they will miss BEFORE they attend the event. They do not get extra time for missing class for these reasons.

Box Tops For Education!

Don’t forget to send in your box tops! Mr. Barstow has sheets for the students to tape 10 box tops on and turn in. If you send your box tops in, we will get them on the sheets for you!
