answer in the box. During 8th period the winners will be announced. The prizes

include cool college giveaways and ice cream from the cafeteria. Here we

       to learn!

  3. Just a quick reminder, Seahawks – students are not allowed to carry or wear backpacks
     – please make sure that you put your backpacks in your locker!



  4. Hey, Seahawks – Morning and Afternoon Tutorials will begin this Thursday, August 25.
     Morning tutorials are from 7:55 AM to 8:15 AM, and afternoon tutorials are from 3:35
     PM to 4:05 PM. You must have a pass in order to attend tutorials – for this week, please
     ask your parents or teachers to write a pass for you; next week, you will be receiving
     your Student Agendas, and then you will use the pass in the back of the Agenda.

  5. 6th grade Seahawks – remember to get to the cafeteria for your lunch time as soon as
     your 3rd period class ends – don’t delay at your locker, because lunch time goes fast! It
     is a good idea to even take your things with you for your 4th period class so that you can
     go directly there after lunch – just a helpful hint from your fellow Seahawks!
