Don’t forget everything.

Have a safe summer. Try to learn something new because it is fun, not because you have to.

Tues. 17 June 2014 – DO NOT COME TO SCHOOL – FINALS MAKE-UPS ONLY

School is out for summer! This day is for finals make ups ONLY. Do not come to school unless you have arranged with a teacher to make up a final that you missed because of an excused absence.

Do not come to school just to hang out. If you are not in a room taking a final, you will be escorted to a holding room so that you will not be bothering those who are making up finals. It will not be fun. Fun is summer. Go do fun. (Wear sunscreen.)
