Happy Monday,

I passed back several “fear” paragraphs that need additional work.  I have invited students to join me in Homework Center tomorrow from 3:15 - 4:15 pm, so we can work on these paragraphs.  Homework Center will also be open on Thursday from 3:15 - 4:15 pm, in case your child cannot make it tomorrow.  I am up-to-date in my grading; all grades have been posted on PowerSchool.
Science camp bills were sent home for the gold group today.  Checks due by October 10th.
 
REGARDING SCIENCE CAMP FORMS:
 
1.  Please remember to fill out the BLUE FORM as completely as possible.  
2.  Make sure that all of your forms have signatures on them.
3.  The GREEN FORM requires a signature from your child’s doctor.  You need a signature on the GREEN FORM for ALL medications, including over-the-counter medicines (e.g. Tylenol, Benadryl, eye drops, etc.)  You do NOT need a signed green form if your child will not be taking any medications to camp.
