What's Happening- March 19-23

Any yearbook students who can stay after school and work on the yearbook today, are encouraged to check into SAFE and come to the computer lab for a work day.

It’s time for our Spring Cub Character Events! K-3rd grades will be having their Easter Egg Hunt again at Bel Air Park! This is such a great event that we love putting on for our little ones! This Friday, March 30th we’ll head over to Bel Air Park (weather dependent) for an Easter Egg hunt and a sack lunch from school or home will be had there. We’ll board the bus at 9:45 and leave the school at 10:00. We’ll load the bus at 12:00 and head back to school in time to release for our Minimum Day that day at 12:40. Parents are encouraged to meet us at Bel Air Park at 10 ~ it’s super fun to watch the kids and we’re always so pleased to see all the Cub Character on display! If you would like to donate plastic Easter Eggs and especially individually wrapped candy for the eggs for our Cub Character Easter Egg hunt this Friday, you can drop off items in the Office. Thank you for your support!

4th – 8th grades will have their Cub Character Event this Thursday (March 29th). Student Council has planned a fun day of games and sports. 4th – 8th graders vote for their peers and teachers and support staff vote as well for those students who consistently show Cub Character. If a student does not qualify, they aren’t in any trouble – they’ll have a normal afternoon.

Student Council

We’re planning a Middle School Dance for May 25th so SAVE THE DATE!
