Monday, March 20, 2017 Day 3

As many of you may NOT know, After-The-Bell is run solely on generous donations & grants from companies, foundations, and people just like you! Students will be bringing home a donation request letter from After-The-Bell this week. Even if you are not currently participating in After the Bell you can support the program. You may send in your donation to the middle school in an envelope marked ‘ATB Direct Giving Campaign’ or donate online. There is a link in the email from the PTO.

Please stay tuned for a video for 7th Grade Math Carnival

Just a reminder, tomorrow we have an early dismissal to complete the last day of conferences. Please double-check your conference times.

Girls lacrosse tryouts will begin Wednesday, March 22nd. Be prepared for indoor and outdoor practice every day. Be sure you are cleared with Nurse Shannon by Wednesday. See Ms. Frattura or Mrs. Fairchild with any questions.

For all the 7th graders out there, Mr. Shepherd and Mrs. Reinheimer are looking for students to be a part of our Mindfulness group. Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations. If you have interest, ask the counselors to sign a list at lunch. Students will be required to obtain parental permission to participate.
