Announcements

Stilwell Announcements, April 16, 2014 Day 1

 

Parents

If your student is going to be leaving early from school, please send a note with your student and they can come into the office at 7:25 a.m. to get a pass to leave when needed. This helps so we do not have to call into a classroom and disrupt learning time.  If your student is coming in LATE, we do not answer phones during that time.  Please send a note with them.

 

7th Grade Band

7th Grade Band members – Remember that you have combined rehearsals today.

 

Hyperstream

 

HyperStream club members:  Please remember to turn in your longitudinal study form THIS WEEK!  to be eligible for the drawing for an iTunes gift card.  If you need another copy of this form, please see Mrs. Henderson.
