Many of the pencils that students are using no longer have erasers. Please check with your child to see if  erasers are needed. A good idea is to purchase an eraser that can be kept in the pencil bag. This is especially needed for math class.

Football Friday Night!!

Students are so excited about the first home football game tonight. We enjoyed the pep rally where a few of our sixth grade cheerleaders led us in cheering for the Trojans. Our week has flown by and your students have worked hard. Today we nominated several of our students to run for Student Council. The campaigning begins Monday and continues Tuesday early morning before school. They have a list of rules for the campaigning. They will give speeches during chapel next Wednesday and parents are of course welcome to attend. The race was close for all the nominees. Just a heads up that September 4th is picture day and that will also be the day we induct our new Student Council officers. Have a great weekend!
