Students please refrain from bringing any type of slime, sponge toys, rubic cubes, or cell phones to class. They are a distraction from the learning environment and may result in an office referral. Make sure that if any of these items are in class they are being used under the permission of the teacher and for learning purposes only.

Watts’ Waka Waka dancers, please meet for rehearsal today after school.  Room 313.

Notes from the school nurse:  Juice or fresh fruit?  Which is better for you, eating fruit or drinking juice?  When you eat a piece of fruit, you get fiber, vitamins and minerals.  Drinking juice is ok but remember that it provides a lot of calories and fills you up without the fiber.  Juice is often full of sugar that fruit does not have. 

Monday-Feb 5:  The public library is hosting “Anti-Valentine’s Day Party from 1-2:30 for those 12-18 years old.  Unromantic craft making and fun activities are planned.  Call 443-3161 to register.
