May I have your attention please for the daily announcements. This is Caroline Graf.
Welcome back to school, it is going to be a great year. Good morning, today is Thursday, August 25, 2011.
Billy Ray Cyrus has a birthday today? He had a number one country hit back in the nineties, but he is more famous for being the father of Miley Cyrus, a tv and movie actress, as well as a teen sensation in the music industry. Can you fill in the blank of the title of Billy Ray’s number one hit? The title is, Achy Breaky Blank. Do you know what goes in the blank? The answer is on the bottom of the announcements that can be seen on the Tiger Talk Blog.
Students: We want to keep you safe as you travel to and from school. Please look both ways as you cross the streets. You need to cross in the crosswalk area. Watch for cars – they may not see you. As you come up the school sidewalk, or go to the buses this afternoon, please walk. We do not want some of our smaller students knocked down. Students riding bikes, please park your bikes in the bike racks.
The kitchen staff would like to welcome all of the students back to school. Please remember your manners as you move through the lunch line today and everyday. Have a great school year.
OST students: Any students staying for OST, please come to the gym after school today.
Students.please get your handbook sheet signed and turned in as soon as possible.
Students in grades 4-5. The Dakota STEP scores are in from last spring and you did outstanding. Our district was 1 of 5 districts in the state to receive distinguished status. Way to go! We will be having an assembly next week to draw for the laptop prizes. Remember if you did well, or if your class met their goal, you received an entry to win a laptop. I am happy to say that every student will receive at least one entry. Remember one lucky person in grades 4th, 5th, 6th , and 7th will be going home with a laptop next week. Maybe it will be you!
Here is the lunch menu for today: Bar-b-q, sun chips, fruit, cookie, and milk.
Breakfast for tomorrow: cinnamon roll, yogurt, fruit, juice, and milk
