6th Grade Sea World Sleepover Deposits Due

posted Nov 1, 2019, 11:28 AM by Kira Alexander

This is a friendly reminder that the 6th Grade Sea world Trip deposits of $50.00 are due on November 6th. If you are interested in chaperoning the trip, your $50.00 deposit is due as well. Our current interest in chaperones/students wanting to attend the trip exceeds the number of spots available on the buses. The $50.00 deposit will secure your spot/student’s spot on the bus.  We will only be taking SeaWorld payments on Wednesday’s from 7:55-8:30am. This way it gives us time to write receipts and deposit money without interfering with instructional time.

We thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Electricity!  LOWE's (2929 W Thunderbird Rd Lowe's Home Improvement) will be here with an activity "What if your electricity was out for a day?" where students and parents will work together to construct a small flashlight.
