Announcements (Important – please read):

  1. From Mrs. Taylor; Hello Middle Schoolers. This message is for group D-2 only. Group D-2, please pick up clay in the multi-purpose room. You may also grab what you need as far as clay tools (skewer, paperclip, popsicle stick, and 3 or 4 toothpicks to make a scoring tool at home.

The Alphas will be doing clay this week on Zoom April 28th. The Betas will be doing clay on Zoom on May 5th.
