Today is Thursday, December 5th and it is an A Day.

Do you create Tik Toks of dances? Would you like them to be shared with the school?  This year our yearbook will have QR codes to scan for video and audio clips. If you’d like to share your appropriate dance Tik Toks, go to the yearbook page, under class pages, on the website and upload your video.

Have you ever wondered if you could help the homeless members of our community stay warm on cold winter nights? National Junior Honor Society members are collecting blankets during the first two weeks of December to donate to the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry. Please bring a blanket to donate in one of our boxes around campus.

The Alachua County Democratic Party is sponsoring a writing contest for middle school students.  The topic is: What African American Leader Inspires You…and Why? Essays must be emailed no later than January 20th.  There are cash prizes for the winners. For more information, see the flier in the front office window.

All UNICEF students our school cleaning day is Wednesday, December 11 after school. Please join UNICEF cleaning our school.
