Eighth Grade and Math — Mrs. Schumann

From the Desk of Mrs. Schumann April 15-23

Dear Parents and 8th Graders,

Remember to submit your photos for the graduation video to the Google file.

We will be taking an individual picture of your child to be used as a graduation gift and quite possibly in the graduation video.  This picture will take place during the school day on Wednesday, April 21.  Please make sure your child is wearing something extra nice this day.  Thank you.

Community service hours are due in May.  Please look for things to do around the house, yard or a neighbor's yard to get some service hours banked.  Don't forget the church is always looking for someone to run the power point for the weekend church services.
