Dear 8th Grade Families,file_001

I can’t believe it’s already been two weeks since our trip to Washington, DC. Our visits to the museums were enriching, our advisory reflection times proved thoughtful, and our many bus rides were nothing short of entertaining. The students worked together to earn advisory points, and points are currently being tallied to determine the winner(s). This advisory will be able to earn an extra dress down day and a special treat in December.

The Advisory Competition did not end with our trip, however! Points have started reaccumulating with the current Food Drive happening in the Middle School. Collection boxes are located in each advisor’s room and all collected items will be donated to the Food Bank of Central img_1488and Eastern North Carolina. Please refer to the Food Bank’s Most Needed Items list for further details.

Finally, I want to thank you all of you who helped with the planning of the dance last week. It was perfectly decorated for the “tailgate” theme, and fun was had by all! The 8th graders were especially helpful in cleaning up the gym after the dance was over. We look forward to the next dance in January!
