I hope everyone enjoyed the short week last week. We will make up those two days on Feb. 15 and April 25. Hopefully we won't have anymore snow days□ Although a late start would be nice next Monday as I know we'll all be up late cheering on the home team... Let's go Panthers!!!
So glad to report that Holly Wade, one of our 8th grade students, came home from the hospital last week. Our prayers are with her and the entire Wade family as Holly continues he rehab and treatments.
Have a wonderful week!!

Check your pantry for Box Tops on cereal boxes, soup cans, juice bottles, frozen vegetables, sandwich bags, aluminum pans, and even some packaged undergarments.
Label your envelopes or bags as follows so your student/homeroom class is properly credited.
