Attention Mrs. Ahmed’s AP Environmental Science classes:

 

3rd period: Line up in the lobby at 12:05 for a brisk walk to the library. You may leave all of your things here.

 

4th period: come to the lobby and line up immediately after 3rd period. You may bring all of your things and will be dismissed from the library!


 

Science Center If you are arriving at school before the Science Center opens, you should come to the Main Building instead of waiting outside for a teacher to flip the sign. We have noticed that students are lingering around the doors of the Science Center waiting for it to open, but you shouldn't be waiting outside unsupervised, especially with the weather getting colder and the mornings staying darker longer. Come to the Main Building for the first 15-30 minutes of arriving to school, then walk over with a friend once the Science Center opens.


 

Main Street Attraction Silent Auction As you know, Main Street is coming soon, and the PTSA holds a silent auction every year with some amazing items. This year we have everything from a 6 month family YMCA membership, to a stay at the French Lick Resort, just to name a few. Because we realize that not everyone can make it to the actual event, we are holding online bidding on the Signature PTSA Facebook page starting Sunday evening at 8:00 pm and closing on Thursday evening at 8:00 pm. Please visit the page and check out all our fantastic items. Every penny goes right back into our school, so it's no-guilt shopping! You don't want to miss out!
