When we own our school, we own our computer labs. When entering the labs, we are to enter quickly and quietly. We do not bring food of drink of any kind into the labs and we do not move any of the computers without the ok of our teachers.

Pledge: 

Today, we have Friday Pollard from Mrs. Merry's class to lead us in the pledge.  Now, please stand...Put your right hand over your heart, ready begin...

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

Today's announcement is brought to you by Jump Rope for Heart!  Did you know that your body has about 6 quarts of blood?  These 6 quarts circulate through the body 3 times every minute.  The heart pumps about 1 million barrels of blood during an average lifetime - that's enough to fill more than 3 super tankers.

Remember Jump Rope for Heart envelopes are due today. Don't forget...when you get ten donations online you'll be entered into a drawing for some fun event prizes! 

Finally, a friendly reminder, please do not run through any of the planted areas on campus. 
    
Remember, Safety First!
  • On your way to and from school remember to use all crosswalks, obey all traffic signals, and watch out for one another.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus.
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • Play safe on the playground and when the bell rings to line up, you freeze, wait for a teacher to blow his or her whistle, and walk to your line safely. We do not want anyone running as you could get hurt.
  • When you arrive at school in the morning, you are to sit at the lunch tables. All students are to remain sitting at the lunch tables until a teacher says that you may get up to line up.
  • Please remember to pick up after yourself after you eat breakfast, snack, and lunch.  Mr. Larios does not want to pick up after you!
  • At the end of the day, please leave the campus quickly and either walk home or wait in front of the office for you parents.  If your ride is not there, please wait at the front of the school patiently and quietly for your ride.
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.
