Reminder to Students who walk to and from school. We are fortunate to have a crossing guard on most days in order to help you cross our busy intersection safely and to help you to follow the pedestrian laws designed to keep you safe. We had a few scary near misses on Friday afternoon, with students crossing Broadway unsafely in front of cars. Please, please, please be careful when crossing busy city streets by our school.
The Library will be closed today
The week before winter break we averaged about 74 pounds of garbage created during lunch in the cafeteria. Last Tuesday through Friday we averaged less than 14 pounds of garbage created during lunch in the cafeteria per day. That’s about 60 pounds of waste that is being composted or recycled each day. Let’s keep it up this week!
Ski & Snowboard Club will start this Tuesday, January 12th! Please bring your equipment to school in the morning and take it to Room 114 to be stored safely for the day. All skiers and Riders will change into ski clothes and meet in room 114 before getting on the bus at 2:30.
Today is intervention workshop for 6th & 7th graders. Students, if you need help from a teacher, ask to be drafted!
Tuesday night the high school basketball teams will be raising money for cancer research at their home games. The girls play McAuley at 6:30 and the boys play Scarborough at 8. $1 from each ticket will be donated. Fans are being asked to wear white, so it can be a “white out”. Go support the high school basketball teams and and a great cause!
The 7th grade girls' team defeated Scarborough 40-20 on Friday. Fiona Stawarz led scoring with 12 points followed by Allie Hanlon with 10 pts, Julia Loring with 7 pts and Maria Degifico with 5 pts. Cora Boothby-Akilo and Zoe Collins helped out well on defense and rebounding. Great team effort!
