Have you ever wanted to write a novel but you're not sure where to
start or you just don't think it's possible?  November is National
Novel Writing Month aka NaNoWriMo, and we're setting out to write a
novel in 30 days.  Will you join us?  Come join the fun, learn more
about NaNoWriMo and sign up for the challenge this Wednesday in the
library after school.  Hope to see you there!


There will be a Robotics meeting after school on Wednesday in Room 314.


The next Best Buddies event will be a Halloween Monster Hunt on Wednesday, October 26th.  Join us after school in Mrs. Ryan’s Room 409 for a scavenger hunt and some spooky snacks.  Hope to see you there!


 Seniors: make sure you put time, effort and creativity into your costume because we all love to see the amazing costumes you come up with. However, here are some restrictions to make sure good judgment is used:

·  No masks or other items that obscure the face or could make identification of the student difficult.

·  Nothing that could pose a potential safety risk to self or others, i.e. roller blades, skateboards, scooters, bicycles, stilts, long sticks or toy/play weapons

·  Nothing that resembles a handgun, rifle or other firearm

·  Nothing of a provocative, revealing nature - dress should be appropriate for an educational setting

·  No costumes intending to resemble past or present staff members

·  Nothing that demeans or makes fun of anyone with a disability or jests at social, cultural or religious groups

·  Given the recent concern in the community and through social media, no clown costumes

·  Use good judgment please! Let's keep this a really fun day for everyone.

Our hope in sharing this information ahead of time is to help support students in enjoying this fun event but also avoid some of the issues we have seen over the years.
