Students we will hold a dance on the last day of school this Thursday! if our tardies for the rest of this week and next are under 5% or our attendance for the next two weeks is at 94% or higher!
We would love to improve in these two areas as a school and recognize our improvement with a dance on the last day of school before spring break!
If we can meet both of these goals or one of them you can participate in the dance, play dodge ball or basketball in the gym, or spend time in the library with your friends.
Let’s rise to the challenge!
Have a great day…and Go HAWKS!!!
