Today is the last day to get a kiss from Kiley.  She has kissed many, so if you haven’t had your library account checked this week, come to the media center to get a chocolate kiss for having no overdue books on your account.

Do you have a book to read over break?  We would love to have you get one from the media center before you go on break.  Not going anywhere over break?  Books can take you anywhere-come check out our selection.

IPads should be kept safe over break.  Don’t let younger kids play on them.  Don’t leave them on the floor.  It is best not to take them on a trip with you as you might forget them.  Don’t leave them in vehicles.  Don’t have them near water (beaches or pools). 

Make sure you have computer passwords written in a safe place.  Planners are always a good choice.   Many students forget their computer logins, so having them written down is a great idea.

Congratulations to Mrs. Fulkerson’s advisory for having the most students wear hats on last week’s Hat Day! Altogether we raised nearly $62 for the Food Bank last week, plus the cans collected on Pi Day! Way to go Cyclones!

There will be NO garden club on Monday April 3

Girls’ Basketball camp forms are now available – pick one up in the main office, off our website, or from Coach Rowe
