What a great concert last night! Congratulations to the 7th and 8th Graders! Thank you to everyone who contributed to our fundraiser!!!!! We so appreciate it!!! The Fundraiser Celebration for students who sold at least 5 items OR donated $100 is Friday after school from 4:30-5:45pm. All students that participating should have a ride to pick them up at Durham between 5:45 and 6pm. We will be providing pizza and water for those students, along with the silly string, director dunk tank, an obstacle course, and a bouncy bungee run. We need several adult volunteers if any of you are able to help! Here is the sign-up link for that: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050d49aaaa2ba57-fundraiser1 We have received the girls' formal uniforms and will be sending them home in the next few days. Please let us know ASAP if there any problems with the uniforms. The boys' uniforms have not arrived yet. Universal Trip (8th) The next payment for the trip is 11/16 (200.00) Students and chaperones should have made three payments by this time. All students have Charms assignments due.
