If your son or daughter will be receiving an award, you will be contacted by their teacher prior to the program but remember that these awards are a surprise to the student.

We are sharing with you an opportunity to purchase spiritwear before the end of the school year. Our spiritwear design and options will remain the same for the 2013-2014 school year, so take advantage of this opportunity to buy your spiritwear before the start of the new school year.
See Mr.Dunton if you need an order form. He has copies in his room!
Track 1 Awards Ceremony: Thursday May 23rd 9:30am in the Gym
This is the ceremony where we will recognize each 8th Grader for their successful completion of the 8th Grade and present our awards for Student of the Year, Individual Subject Awards, SPLASH Award and our Extra Effort Award.
On Friday May 31st is the 8th Grade Picnic. This is held at school and there was information sent home about it. This date is also the day of the 8th Grade Dance from 7:00-9:30pm. It is also the last day of school for Track 1.
There will be more information coming home about the awards ceremony as we get closer so be on the look out for that. If you have any questions please let us know. Thanks again for your continued support throughout this year.
Here is the link to the survey:
We will be having the students create their rooming preference lists in the next week or so. The process will go like this. I will hand out the rooming request sheets to the students in home room on a specified day. The students will have until 11:30 (after lunch) to give me one sheet for their requested room (4 students). I will make sure that all 4 roommates agree to this and it is a room that we can trust to be responsible tenants at the hotel without adult supervision in the room, and then send a copy home to each parent to have it signed off on. Once I receive a signed form from all 4 roommates that room is locked in and there will be no changes.
Reminder that payment #2 ($75) is due by Friday March 1st. If you cannot make this payment please inform Mr.Dunton. You can pay online even while we are tracked out. The remaining balance is due by April 19th. We will be sending home information about room assignments and groups for the field trip when we Track In so be on the lookout for that.
High School Registration:
Students and parents are reminded about HS registration. Your registration info is due to Mrs.Deen by Tuesday March 26th. If you are in need of assistance with registration you have to your paper to Mrs.Deen by Friday March 22nd. If there are any questions they need to be to Mrs.Deen by tomorrow as she will not be able to check email over track out.
When we return from Track Out we have about a month of school until we will be in full testing mode. Students will be taking an MSL (Measure of Student Learning) in all 4 of their classes and an EOC in Algebra (if they take Algebra). Please understand that these exams are a measure of the student’s academic progress for the year and may be used in determining placements in High School classes. With that being said, it is important for all students to do their very best on these exams. We are confident in the students abilities and their progress throughout this year and hope that it is reflected by their scores. If you have any questions or concerns about these exams or anything else concerning academic progress please let us know.
We will be hosting an honor roll lunch for the students who made the A or A/B Honor Roll on Friday March 29th. If you are interested in helping us with this please let us know. We will send home information about this when we return.
It is hard to believe that we are down to the final 10 weeks of the school year, it seems like just yesterday we had our first day of school and a group of former 7th Graders enter our hall. Now they are soon to be Freshman and seem eager to start this new journey. Let’s make sure they finish this year strong and have good habits as they enter into High School. We wish everyone a safe and restful Track Out.
