Just a quick reminder that if you mark a student absent during home room and they come in late, PLEASE either change it on campus or let the office know so they can change it.  Parents get a call between 10:00 and 11:00 stating that their student is not in school.  Lately we have been fielding many calls from parents worried about this and they say they had dropped off the student.  In order not to alarm our parents, PLEASE be more diligent in this matter. Thank you in advance for your help in this matter.

The 8th grade team is planning a CARD activity for next Wednesday, October 16th during zero hour.  Students will have the opportunity to attend Lounge Day in the guidance area for 2 cards.  See attached document for schedule.  Please let me know if I missed anything.
