Dear Parents,

Parent/Teacher Conferences are next Friday, details in last week’s memo. There is no school that day.

Yearbook Orders are due no later than next Thursday, the 15th. More details in last week’s memo. I’ve printed the order form below.

The end of the marking period is Thursday, March 29th. The following week is vacation, so report cards will be issued three weeks later instead of two, on April 20th.

Poetry Out Loud readings by students will be presented from 1:00-1:50 on two days next month, Thursday and Friday, April 19th and 20th. Parents, family and friends are welcome to attend. This is specifically a 7th-12th grade student event, but some other classes have opted in, so ask your kid if he or she is participating.

Poetry Out Loud is a national program sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation, which encourages students to learn about great poetry through memorization and recitation. It helps students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, learn about literary history and contemporary life and, hopefully, be lifelong lovers of poetry. Students memorize and recite three poems of their own choosing through the course of the year and recite them each quarter before an audience of their classmates. They then choose one of the poems mastered for these assemblies, during which they recite their poem before the entire school and guests. 7th-12th graders are eligible for the national contest, which we have performed well in in previous years. The contest concludes in Washington, D.C. with a $20,000 prize for the winner.

God bless,

Pastor Scott
