Daily Reminders:

TARDIES: Students will have a clean-slate for tardies starting today. There is a slight change to the Tardy policy. Instead of an AUTOMATIC IN SCHOOL SUSPENSION for any tardy after your 4th tardy you will have the option of serving an IMMEDIATE DETENTION (Day of) after school for 30 minutes to avoid In School Suspension. This detention MUST be served from 3:30-4:00 on the day of the tardy. A morning option/reschedule will not be available. If you choose NOT to attend the 30 minute after school detention you will be assigned to ISS which will take place on Fridays with Mrs. Blotsky. If you receive a tardy after the fourth tardy you will receive a notice from the office so that you are able to serve your detention that day after school. Please find more information about this in the email from Mrs. Blotsky as well as on our Website.

Volleyball awards will be on Monday, November 22nd at 5:00pm in the auditorium.

Did you know?? A near-total lunar eclipse will occur early Friday morning, with prime visibility in North America. It will last 3 hours and 28 minutes - the longest partial lunar eclipse this century, NASA predicts. Here's how to see the rare event, when up to 97% of the moon will look red. During the early hours of Friday morning, Earth will pass between the sun and moon, casting a shadow over the latter. The eclipse will peak just after 4 a.m. Eastern Time, when our planet will hide 97% of the full moon from the sun's light, giving the moon a reddish hue. Thanks to Mrs. Gapp for the information!!
