St. Patrick’s Day Riddle- THE FINAL CLUES!
7th grade: I’m here in the corner, just look and you’ll find I’m right next to Shakespeare and books of that kind.
8th/9th grade: If there’s one thing they’ve taught you it’s to protect your head, but to find the prize you must leave one dead. Good luck everyone!
ATTENTION: If you are the first to find the prize, please keep it in your backpack and pickup the rest of your prize in the office after school.
Math tutoring is available today 3:30-4:30 with Mr. Guy in B-4.

Great news from environmental news!
The white lunch trays can now be recycled with the brown paper trays! Please stack your white and brown lunch trays and drop them into the black, rectangular bins around campus!
Students and teachers:
Environmental news is spreading the word that dead batteries can pollute the environment if they are thrown in the garbage. Please bring your dead batteries from your class or from home to the office so they can be properly recycled! Thanks!
