General Announcements

HIGH SCHOOL REGISTRATION: As a follow-up to Tuesday's high school electives assembly, 8th grade parents and students are strongly encouraged to attend the February 15 "8th Grade/HS Registration Information Night" starting at 7:30 PM in the high school auditorium. See more info here:  https://drive.google.com/a/timothychristian.com/file/d/0B2Pl0pyqUkrRbGFLOTNQMGFXaHRra2R2MGlkMDI5Sk1SMDAw/view?usp=sharing
After lunch on February 27, 8th graders will register online in PowerSchool in the middle school. They will receive guidance from their 8th grade teachers, high school counselors, and our technology director. Students will use a parent-signed registration form that parents will receive during the February 15 meeting and send with their child to school, so all parents will be involved in the process also.

**Reminder: Holocaust Museum field trip this Friday, February 17. Please make sure 8th grade students bring a sack lunch.

Advance Notice:  Grandparents Day is MAY 5
