Happy Memorial Day Weekend,
 
All Language Arts textbooks (small, black, hardcover book) need to be returned to school next TUESDAY, 5/29!!  This applies to ALL students.  Textbooks were assigned and checked-out to individual students at the beginning of the school year.  This means that your child is responsible for the cost of the book if it has been lost or stolen.
 
7th grade elective course sheets were sent home (green).  Please complete the form as soon as possible because classes are filled on a first come, first served basis.  Please return the forms to Miss Perris, and I will give them to the office.  Students were given instructions on how to fill out the sheet.  In a nutshell:
 
1.  Either check off the wheel (trimesters) OR check off one of the year round classes.
2.  If your child has me for ELA, write PERRIS on the teacher line.  If your child has Mr. Chen, write CHEN on the teacher line. 
3.  Your child’s ID number is on their ID cards and on Powerschool.
4.  IF your child wants to take a year long class:
 
*They need to choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice.
**If they want band, they do NOT need to put a 2nd or 3rd choice.
***If your child wants AVID, they can write in the word “AVID” under year long classes and select a 2nd and 3rd choice.  If your child has not been approached regarding AVID, please disregard this as an option.
 
Please let me know if you have any questions.  Again, you want to get these forms in AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
 
Please make sure to return your child’s field trip permission slip to Mrs. Donovan as soon as possible.  We will be going to San Tomas Park on Friday, 6/8.
