Dear Parents and Guardians:

CORE/Cub Pride Lessons and CORE Days for 6-8 graders: This week, all three grade levels have the opportunity to participate in activities facilitated by Greg Sommers, beginning on Monday, Sept. 18. Monday is for 8th grade, Tuesday for 7th and Wednesday for 6th.  A number of 8th graders have been identified to help with the 6th grade day as well, and we really appreciate their assistance and positive leadership.  The names of students who turned in permission slips were posted last week so students would know if they participate in morning or afternoon sessions.  Please contact us if you have questions.
