    On Thursday, May 25, 2017, our eighth grade students are invited to attend an end-of-the-year dance at Keller Junior High.  The event will run from 6:00-8:00 PM and will require parent permission. Tickets to the dance are available at this time for purchase.  Students can buy tickets in the morning. This year’s dance theme is Gold and Glitz. As a reminder, students need to maintain academic and behavioral expectations in order to attend.

    Homework Expectations

    It is hard to believe that we are already in third trimester!  We feel strongly that the last trimester of school is as important as the first weeks of school.  Our staff will continue to require quality work, assignments, and projects needed to be completed on time.  Our expectations include that every student gives a 100% effort in each and every class.  We are also expecting student behavior to remain positive.

    Any student who accumulates six disciplinary detentions or who receives a school suspension during the third trimester could be excluded from some of the end of the year events.

    Board policy states, “In order for eighth (8th) grade students to participate in the Graduation Ceremony, all academic assignments must be completed by the student.”

    Iwalk/Bike to School Day May 26th

    Friday May 26th is iwalk/Bike to School Day is a specially designated day designed to encourage parents and students to define safe walking or bicycling routes to and from school. On the iwalk/Bike to School Day, village and school staff hand out rewards, such as pencils, to those students who participated by walking or bicycling from home to school that morning.

     

    While celebrated with this special event, it is hoped that participation will sustain this effort.   Walking and bicycling offers many health and environmental benefits for our children and improves pedestrian safety in addition to helping reduce traffic and congestion.

     

    With assistance from each school and Parent Teacher Associations, we can help everyone understand the environmental, health, and congestion-easing benefits walking and bicycling to school can provide. For more information on iwalk, click the attached link http://www.walkbiketoschool.org/
