Haynes Bridge Community,
It is the end of the first semester and we are ready to celebrate our students who have consistently made good decisions at school. Tomorrow, we will be celebrating the 600+ students who have maintained good behavior for the 2nd quarter of school. Students who qualify have never received an office referral and have less than 2 level 1 classroom incidents. To celebrate we will be having a dance and serving hot chocolate and cookies. In order to make this work, we are on a scheduled which ends 8th period before 3 and the last hour is used for the celebration. Once the dance has started it will be difficult to dismiss students prior to 4:00. Therefore, we are asking that any early dismissals happen prior to 3. Please see page 2 of this newsletter for directions.
Did you know that we are collecting items for families who are in Puerto Rico and The Virgin Islands struggling as a result of the hurricanes that hit several months ago? There are collection bins in the front of the school to drop off supplies. There is a full list, however, for the month of January we are doing a push to collect boys and girls underwear and socks. While on the break, if you find these items on clearance, please consider picking some up to help cloth the less fortunate in this hurricane ravaged area. The college with the most donations will get extra points towards the end of the year score to see who leads for Haynes.
I know that many of us are excited for the winter break ahead of us. We hope you enjoy the extra time with your children and family over the break. To our Christian families, Merry Christmas and to everyone Happy New Year!
Mrs. Lauren Malekebu
