    RISE meets today in room 807.  We can't wait to see everyone who wants to check out RISE!

    There will be a garden workday this Saturday from 1:00-3:00.  Please come join us to help close the gardens for the season.

    Attention, attention! For those of you interested in going to Washington DC with Mrs. Metz and friends from June 1-4, there will be a meeting on the evening of the 28th. The meeting is for families who want to hear more about the trip. Be here at school by 6:30 that night, November 28 (that's about two weeks from now), and come to the library. If you don't come to the meeting, you are still welcome to go, but this will be a chance to meet the travel agent and get details. For those of you who are already signed up, you are more than welcome to come, but it's not mandatory.

    Turn in your 8th grade t-shirt orders to your math teacher.  These are due by Tuesday and late orders can’t be accepted. Don’t forget!

    Welcome from Mrs. Ryan
