St. Patrick’s Day Riddle- Day #3!
7th Grade: This room has books of all sorts, so finding me should be quite the sport.
8th/9th Grade: As you walk through the door, I’m near such a thing, with an anthem for which citizens will sing.
Keep looking Eagles and Pandas!
Calling all 9th Graders!
We will be moving on next year to the high school, so shouldn’t we leave our legacy behind? In order to raise the money, we need all the 9th graders to sell See’s candy. Extra order forms are available in the office and are due Thursday, March 22nd. Any questions please see Ms. Amsler in A-7. Thanks for all your hard work so far.
