Attention all Fuel-Up-To-Play 60 participants: this week is the last week for open gyms. Thank you for participating all year long!

This is another reminder to please remember that no bikes may be brought into the building. They need to stay outside and should be locked up for safe-keeping. Also, be careful riding your bikes around the school, especially shortly before and after school. These are very busy times with so many buses and cars dropping off and picking up students. Please be extra careful!

Today was a TOKEN TURN IN DAY! We only have 2 more times to turn in your tokens. Don’t forget! Fill out a token redemption form and see Mrs. Bell in the guidance office on Tuesday morning next week -since we do not have school on Monday)

Wed.-5/25-- Students of the Month for April (for Dr. Spickard to read) The 6th grade teachers have chosen Grace Gauthier and Ryan Giasi as Students of the Month for April. Grace is awesome! She always has a smile on her face and can light up a room! Not only is Grace kind and caring, she is respectful of both her peers and the adults in our classrooms. She is a great friend and role model as well as a joy to be around. Ryan is a hard worker. He is wise beyond his years and is very helpful. He speaks kindly and shows compassion and respect to each person he interacts with. He is a true gentleman.

The 7th grade teachers would like to recognize Sami Martin and Ben Stafford as Students of the month. Sami is a leader among her peers. She is a hard worker who always tries her best. Sami goes out of her way to help others. She is a respectful and caring student. Ben is a shining star! He is caring, friendly, and helpful. Ben always has a smile on his face and makes others feel good. Ben is respectful and hard working.

The 8th-grade teachers have chosen Haley Loepke and Chase Kegley as our students of the month. Haley not only models to her peers what a respectful and responsible student looks like, but her empathy for her peers is impressive. Haley is extremely giving and accepting, and her caring attitude, help that she gives to her peers, and strong work ethic is what makes her stand out as a model citizen. Chase's outstanding respect for his peers and staff make him a model citizen as well. Chase is also extremely responsible and is always prepared to work hard in every class, and he is always willing to take on a leadership role to help fellow peers when help is needed. We are very proud of both Haley and Chase for modeling and living up to the six pillars of character.

Grace, Ryan, Sami, Ben, Haley and Chase should all report to the office at this time to get their certificates and get their picture taken. Thank you!
