Spring Pictures - Friday, March 6 during PE classes. You do not have to wear a polo shirt if you
are buying pictures. It is not a free dress day. If you are not buying pictures, you must follow dress code.

Mr. C's Blog - Week 24 - March 2-6

See ya February….  March has arrived!!!

* Friday, March 6th is Picture Day.  This is a free polo day ONLY for students who are purchasing pictures!  Again....  The only students who may be out of uniform are students who come to school with money and the picture envelope!  All other students will be cited and given a loaner shirt to wear. 

* Although Picture Day this is a "free" polo day, students must follow the district and school dress code policy.  Students must wear skirts, skorts, and shorts that are longer than extended finger tips.  Tights, jeggings, and/or leggings are not allowed.  Shirts and tops must cover the shoulders and cover the stomach and back areas.  Pants cannot sag.

* Spring Break is from March 30th – April 3rd!

* Tuesday, March 24th is our 8th grade Panoramic Picture day.  We would like ALL eighth grade students to wear a blue polo on this day for a uniformed photo.  All eighth graders will be in the photo.  It is important to be at school and on time!

* The third quarter is over half done!  The quarter ends on March 27th.  Please keep up with grades through our HAC services.

* Do you know what is in your child's back pack?  Please remember that it is your right and responsibility to know what your child is bringing to school. Pick a day this week to go through your child's back pack, Agenda, and folders.  You might be surprised at what you might find.

* Please make sure your child is not bringing toys and other non-school related items to school!  These items create classroom, school, and bus disruptions that may result in referrals, suspension from school, and loss of bus privileges.

* Dressing out for P.E. is NOT an option. Dressing out is part of students' grade.

Have a great first week of March!!!
