THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY – NO SCHOOL We will not have school on Wednesday, November 25th – Friday, November 27th due to the Thanksgiving holiday. Have a great holiday.

SIXTH GRADE FIELD TRIPS – NOVEMBER 20TH AND DECEMBER 9TH Permission slips went out a couple weeks ago in the Wolf Pouch for the field trips. The field trip to A&T on November 20th will allow students to participate in an energy day and is free of charge. The trip to see A Christmas Carol on December 9th will cost $15 per student. 8TH GRADE FIELD TRIP- DECEMBER 1ST The 8th graders will be going on a field trip to Reynolda House in Winston-Salem on Tuesday, December 1st. The permission slips went home this past Friday. The permission slip and money need to be returned no later than Tuesday, November 24th. Also remember lunch will be off campus. Do not send in extra lunch money on your lunch form for that day. If you have any questions, please contact any of the 8th grade teachers. BETA CLUB MEETING There will be a Beta Club meeting on Thursday, December 3rd from 3-4. Please have students picked up at 4pm.

RECYCLED ART BOXES – 7th GRADE FOLKWAYS CLASS The 7th Grade Folkways Class is collecting items for Recycled Art Boxes. These are things like: buttons, cogs, wheels, bottle caps, wing-nuts, corks, broken small appliance (clocks, can openers, camera, etc.), fabric, paper cones, clips, costume jewelry, shells, twine, ribbon, springs, foil trays, just about anything that can be recycled! Use your imagination! Do Not Send: batteries, items that may pose a cutting hazard, any chemicals, or soiled items. Please collect your items in a sturdy box (shoe box size to paper box size) write your name on the inside lid and drop it off at the school. We will collect the Art Boxes up until the Winter Break. The boxes will then be distributed to children with the challenge to create a piece of original artwork from the contents! Sounds like fun doesn't it! But it will not happen unless we get items donated. So go through those junk drawers, cluttered cabinets, desk drawers and trinket boxes and put together a Recycled Art Box. Contact Mrs. LaPlant via email for more information at! BASKETBALL Help support our BCMS basketball players by coming to this season’s games!
