Attention Sophomore GEAR UP students:  ACT Books have arrived and are available for pick up before and after school and over the lunch hour in the NORTH END of the building by the cafeteria.  See Mrs. Mead to get your books before the end of the year.

Attention! All artworks need to be picked up from an art teacher today!! Anything left behind will become the property of the school and we cannot guarantee it’s return to the artist after this week!

Mr. Carolin and Mrs. Melone are setting up a Kennedy team for the Squaw Creek Army Challenge.  This is for teachers and students interested in running this 5k mud run as a team. There is a fee and we will make t-shirts.  Be prepared to get very muddy!  See Melone in room 107 if interested.
