Good evening, parents. This is Dr. Strickland with a reminder about Parent Night tomorrow evening, October 25. Our parent night is for parents to learn more about Canvas, Google Classroom, Parent Portal, and the Student Code of Conduct. Our evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will run through 7:40 p.m. We ask that you bring your student’s Chromebook with you when you come and that you are able to access their student account. In this way you will be able to see the systems as they see them – through their view. If you are interested in attending, please fill out the information at the link on our webpage. Additionally, we would like for you to know that our Book Fair will be open in the media center that evening. Finally, please remind your students that tomorrow we will “Sock it to drugs” and our students are encouraged to wear crazy socks.
"3 Gift Baskets are available to the top 3 contributors in our Box Tops contest.
This contest will end on 10/28/16.
Please turn your Box Tops in to your homeroom teacher with your name and teacher's name clearly labeled
