OK, the sun is NOT shining today and it’s raining, but all that means is that the fairways and greens will be that much greener when it’s time to play…….GOLF!  Now is the time to sign up to play golf for the Blackbirds.  This sign up is open to boys and girls, those who play or have never played, and junior high or high school students.  All you need is an interest in playing golf this fall.  Don’t miss out on all the fun this fall.  Stop by Mr. Bracken’s room or Mr. Zimmerman’s room and sign up to play for the Blackbird’s junior high or high school golf team.

What people work tirelessly each day to make sure you get to school safely and back home again at the end of each day?  Who listens day in and day out to hours of chatter, shrieks, and laughter confined in a small space? Who has the stamina and ability to drive in rain, fog, snow, and ice while 50 students are behind them, anxiously waiting to arrive at school?  Today is school bus driver appreciation day!  Our bus drivers are the best!  They drive you to school safely, along with sporting events, musical functions, quiz events and all other extra-curricular activities.  The time and energy they are investing in you is very important.  Please let your bus driver know they are appreciated by telling them “thank you!”
