Please share with your group:
On October 19, your class will be taking the PSAT, an important test that predicts future success in college and also, a measurement that gives your teachers important information about your strengths and weaknesses as a student. This test should finish roughly around 11:00.  Afterward, lunch will be held.  At 12:00, your class will participate in Social Responsibility activities.  This year’s topic for your class will be substance abuse, with special attention given to Central Nervous System Depressants.  The program will be held in the Music room, with follow up discussions in advisory.

Sophomore Class Halloween Party  (cafeteria)

Due to our new schedule with advisory occurring before lunch, there are some changes from previous years:

Please take attendance and then come directly to the cafeteria with your group. Students will need to vacate the cafeteria and return to their advisory room at 10:50 so that the cafeteria can be set up for lunch.  Any help with cleaning up is much appreciated!
