Do you like popcorn? Good news – band and choir are selling popcorn! Bring your money on TUESDAY to buy Kernals popcorn at lunch. Bags are $3 each. Choose from buttersalt, salt and vinegar, dill pickle, caramel, white cheddar and kettle corn. ONLY STUDENTS PURCHASING POPCORN WILL BE ALLOWED INSIDE, and you must exit to go back to supervised areas outside as soon as you’re done. Thanks, and see you Tuesday!!!


Just a reminder to all students: Please avoid coming to get ice because you are “hot.” We realize the weather is getting warmer and you might get hot while doing activities outside. But we want to have ice on hand for injuries.

  • Open high jump practice at lunch for all grades. Most grade 8’s will be away, however.  Unless you can squeeze a jump in before your bus leaves!   Meet in the gym at lunch 12:00

Anyone interested is encouraged to find the sign-up sheet in the office and put your name down. We will be starting next month to get ready for the season in September. Fall camp starts August 19th.
