Santa Auction reminder

We have our Santa Auction (affiliated with the Times Record) next Friday.  In order for it to be a success, we need some help from the kids.  Time to clean out closets, under beds and other places to find any unwanted toys, games, decorations, home goods, etc. that are no longer wanted in your homes.  

We will take donations all next week leading up to the auction on Friday.  If anyone wants to purchase something from the auction, money is needed on Friday.  Items can range from $.25 to $4.00.  It’s loads of fun and we earn a significant amount of money to help families in need.  It certainly is a win, win.

Thanks, enjoy your weekend.

Its themes of Courage, Kindness, Friendship, and Character building are paramount in the middle school years.

We are happy to inform you of a great first week of school. Most students have mastered their lockers, helped others, and have found all of their classes. We look forward to a fantastic year.

Next week you should be receiving a letter from school with the PowerSchool codes and information. This is the web-based program we use for grading and reporting so that you can see how your student is doing at all times. Also next week, our first newsletter.

Happy weekend,

Birch Island Team teachers
