Spotlight on Team Discovery

Gentlemen’s Luncheon and Ladies Luncheon

Written by sixth grade student Jordan Phillips

Every Wednesday the girls and boys eat lunch in their classrooms and learn to be a gentleman or a lady.

The ladies work on being respectful, using manners and eating politely. The gentlemen work on being kind, respectful, being polite while eating and just in general and they work on using manners just like the ladies.

RIF Distribution

Today, all students from preschool to eighth grade will have a chance to pick out a book specific to their age and reading level. RIF stands for Reading is Fundamental and it’s a program that started over forty years ago with the goal of putting brand new books in the hands of children who need them the most. RIF serves 4.4 million children every year and we are very excited to have this program in our school. Thanks to Meg Jarvis for all of her hard work in making this distribution possible.


Dance Tonight-11/18/11

Dances are held from 7 – 9 p.m.

Students will enter through the gymnasium doors and sign themselves into the dance.

School Expectations (Safe, Achieving, Caring) remain at all evening events and that includes


Dismissal from dances is the change. At the end of our dances chaperones and staff will walk

students through the

building to our front lobby. We will dismiss from there.

After all the parking lot changes we have noticed that the flow of traffic is

natural and more light is provided. Safety is important and this change will be safer for all


Please be prompt for pick up as staff and chaperones need to get home too. If your student does not have a ride home please don’t send them to our dances unless they have made

arrangements before coming to the dance.
