Happy Super Bowl Weekend


  • No Homework
  • Last day to order February Scholastic Book Orders is today.
  • Today is the first day of STEM Night. Tickets for tonight's event were already distributed. If you have misplaced it, you can still check in at the STEM Night desk as they have the master roster. The next STEM Night is next Friday; spaces may be available but you need to check with the office.
  • Stay dry this weekend, enjoy the Super Bowl (or shopping during the Super Bowl - it really is a great time to get chores done without the crowds), and major league baseball pitchers and catchers report in less than two weeks!
