I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. 

Special Announcements

As many of you know, Mr. Rodriguez, Mrs. Cottingham, and I have been passing out special tickets to students who have perfect attendance and these students get to play video games on a special game truck tonight during Open House.  Well, you know what, we have found four more, so I'm going to go ahead and choose four more students to join in on the fun right now.  And our first one is... the second is... the third is ... and the last but not least is...  Great job to all of you and we'll see you tonight at Open House! 

Also remember to please make sure that while you are in the office or library you are quiet and respectful of students taking MAP tests and SBAC exams.

Finally, remember to always stay safe on the playground, around our school, on your way to and from school.
 
Thank you for your attention to this morning's message, S.O.A.R. today, and remember to come to school every day and on time because when you miss school you miss out.
