Junior High Students - We are going to have a Glow In The Dark spring dance on March the 29th during the afternoon at school!  Not only do yo get to have fun and dance, you will get out of class as well.  You are required to have all passing grades as of the day before the dance - March the 28th.  If you have only had or get one discipline report, it may still be possible for you to go.  Your teachers will make the decision based on your effort during the PARCC testing and your current classroom behavior.  If this is you, change your ways so you can GLOW with us!  If you have had or get more than one discipline report or a suspension, sorry your afternoon will not be as bright.

Auditions for the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade students will be Monday, March 26th from 8:00-12:00  and Wednesday, March 28 from 8:00-12:00. 
The audition sign up sheet will be located in front of the office.  Choose  a time that will work with your classroom teacher. You should be out of class no longer than 10 minutes.   The auditions will be held in the music room.  
The top 15 acts will be chosen to perform at the talent show. The high school students will also be auditioning.  The top 15 acts will be chosen from their school as well.

YEAH - 8 more days to Spring Break.
