Morning Announcements

January 27, 2020



For the weekly Mini Challenge, we will focus on saying “Thank you.” January is actually National Thank You Month so this is the perfect time to practice. Most of us remember to say thank you for big things like birthday gifts, but it’s also appropriate for ordinary actions like when someone in class hands you a paper, lends you a pencil, or holds the door for you. Even when you aren’t sure, say it anyway. A sincere "thank you” can create a small moment that will have a big impact. How many times do you think you can you say “thank you” to someone this week? 

Turn in your dance requests for the next after school dance, February 6, 2020.  This can be a great time to hang out with friends and have a fun time.  With a Valentine theme we should all have a good time.  Bring your requests to the Student Store.

Keep selling your chocolate Panther's.  It's not too late to bring in a permission slip and start selling now.  There are lots of great prizes and incentives for wanting to sell chocolates.  If you're interested bring your permission slips to your PE teacher and start today.  Help yourself and the school.  Thanks Panthers!

Let’s Explore Colleges 7th and 8th graders!  GEAR UP will be going on another FREE overnight trip with a student and parent/guardian.  For this overnight trip we will be heading to SDSU, USD, UCSD and PLNU, all public and private universities in San Diego.
