Friday Morning announcements 7/27/18


Good morning, Andrada and Happy first Friday!  

We made it to the weekend!


Happy birthday if it’s your birthday today.


If you have not gotten your i.d yet, please see the security to get your id before school, during your freedom block or at lunch. Upperclassmen, you need to turn in your permission slip and get your ID by TODAY or you will not be able to leave early.


Students, this is just a reminder that you should not be out of class except for during your freedom with responsibility block or on a hall pass. Only one student at a time should be out of any one class. If you are still having schedule issues, please wait to see the counselors during freedom block unless you are currently in a classroom whose roster you are not on.


(Miss Daconta): Would you like to hike a volcano in the lush amazon forests of Ecuador? Do you want to swim with marine iguanas on tropical islands? Coming to you THIS Summer of 2019, join Mrs. Daconta and many other students who have ALREADY signed up for the trip of a lifetime! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry (with joy), and you’ll see boobies! Indeed, the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador are home to the one and only bird species, the Blue Footed Boobies! What are you waiting for? Come sign up on Thursday, August 23rd during the 6 PM information session in Room 2205. Hope to see you there!
