Charter Board Meeting This Week
Charter Board will meet Wednesday, July 9 at 6:30 pm in the library.
Countdown to Summer!
We have had a very busy month preparing for the end of the school year. Eighth grade students attended a special assembly with guest speaker baseball player Bobby Grich, who played for the Baltimore Orioles and now is with the California Angels. The students then had an opportunity to listen to various guest speakers throughout the day as they presented their careers! We also had a wonderful Water Day for our Jog-A-Thon participants. The weather was absolutely perfect for this activity! We want to extend our gratitude to those who took time from their busy schedules to share their career choices with our students. What better way to open the doors of possibilities than the voice of experience to our youth!

Students Ask "How Can I Make a Difference?"
Our 7th grade English classes were very involved with a project that centered around the essential question, "How can I make a difference in the world around me?" Each group researched an important issue and created a charity. Their final projects consisted of a poster, a public service announcement, a powerpoint, a flyer or a brochure. Students presented their project and informed other students and teachers about the importance of supporting their charity.
Beverage containers (plastic and glass bottles and cans) are being collected around campus. Look for the Black Recycling Receptacles in some classrooms, the office, and the library to help our environment while at the same time, help generate funds for our library and academic clubs. During lunch time turn in your recyclables into the Grey Recycling Receptacle with Mr. Rodriguez.
Printer ink cartridges & toners are also being collected for recycling. Funds collected benefit our school staff in helping replenish office/school supplies. Look for boxes in the office and the library.
E-Waste items are any electronics that plug in or take batteries (including lithium batteries). Smaller items are collected in boxes located in the office & library. Larger items will be collected later in the year (date to be determined). Please keep e date. Funds collected from E-Waste collections will benefit our school's technology account.
