·       8th graders

o   Can pick up their Yankee Candle orders after school on Monday, Dec. 4. (Please note that this is not a PTA fundraiser. Money from this fundraiser helps pay for the 8th grade trip.) If you can help with distribution of the candles (set up at 1:30, distribution immediately after school) please email Mariah at [email protected].

o   On Weds. December 6th, 8th graders will be voting on whether to have their dance on class night or in April. Voting will take place during their social studies classes and students will use actual voting machines to cast their votes. We are still looking for 2 volunteers – one from 10 to 12 and one from 12 to 3 on Wednesday. Sign up here to help: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a084eacad2da64-8thgrade.
