Today is an A Day.
Congratulations to the 2021 Prom Court: Sophie Wittrock, Alex Babcock, Erika Coleman, Chloe Conger, Taylor Parmenter, Michael Jones, Brayden Sobaski, Cael Lyle, Mason Juhl and Cael Baker.
Prom Court will meet briefly after 3rd hour today, with Ms. Goudy in the hallway by the central office, for a group picture.
We are still in need of Junior parents to sign up to help park cars during the Promenade from 5:45 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. We are needing approximately 7 more people to help. If we don’t get others to sign up, It is going to take much longer and delay the start of other activities. The kids enjoy doing the Promenade so help us to continue this by volunteering.
Corsages and Boots are available to order for Prom. Corsages are $15 and Boots at $5. You will need to help make your own. If interested, please contact Mr. Lamb by Tuesday.
