Family picture: Please bring in a family picture this week. We are discussing family in Religion and Spanish class.

Tuesday: Picture retakes: Students will have the opportunity to retake their school pictures on Tuesday, October 19th. Please let me know if you will need a new picture order form. Please have your child come to school in the uniform they wore for the class picture. There is a chance we may be retaking our class picture. Boys need to wear their pants, belt, and grey short sleeve polo shirt. Girls need to wear their black school shoes, white socks, jumper, white sailor blouse, and tie.

Tuesday: Students will also receive a hearing/vision test. This test is not diagnostic but only a screening process to assess any potential problems. If a problem is noted a letter will be sent home in the mail to the noted address on file in the school office encouraging a follow-up with their physician and/or eye care provider.

Thursday: The 8th grade class will also be hosting another family fun night at LA Food Show (on Beverly). A flyer will be sent home this week. The family fun night will benefit the 8th grade musical.
