News and Notes
October 1, 2014
*Computer Issues: We are in the process of replacing our wireless transmitters. The current wireless system is not able to handle the new Power School upgrades. Teachers, therefore, may be experiencing difficulty posting students' grades. Please be assured that grades are being documented in paper grade books, and will be posted on line as soon as the new transmitters are installed. If you are concerned about your child's academic progress, you are encouraged to contact teachers by email. Thank you for your patience as we work through this process.
*Paint the School Pink Dress Down: We are having a "pink" dress down day this Friday, October 3rd, in support for Mrs. Grecco who is walking in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in New York. Students are asked to donate $1.00 to the Avon Walk, and show support by wearing pink. Please see the enclosed flyer for detailed information. Thank you Mrs. Grecco—you go girl!!!
