2)  Be sure to gather all your personal items and take them home for the  holidays.  Also check the lost and found to see if you are missing any clothing items.

3)    Remember to tell your parents that out PAC group  is holding a bottle drive right after the Holiday Break.  Bring in all refundable bottles to the school on the first week back.

4)  The recycle stations have been much better today. Keep up the great work!  You are making change happen!

5)  Snow – with the small amount of snow left, there is no throwing of snow or ice as it is can be very dangerous.  We do not want to see any students injured.  

6) Reminder if your parents have not picked up the Purdy’s chocolate order, they need to do this today.
