Friday Fun Clubs Begin August 31st

For all of our students who do not go to the pep rallies on Fridays, we are incorporating some diverse afternoon activities. These are sure to provide students with opportunities to learn a new skill, experience social interaction across grade levels, and just plain have fun. Students have completed a survey specifying their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices. This was most successful last year, and we are thrilled to be able to bring it back this year. Stay at school and be part of one of our Friday Fun Clubs.
