8th Grade Hosts Guest Speaker
The 8th grade team is excited to announce an upcoming guest speaker. On Oct. 15 and Oct. 22 our students will hear from Mr. Joseph Dittmar, a 9/11 survivor. Mr. Dittmar’s story is an amazing testimony of the American spirit and will reinforce much of what our students have been discussing and writing about in their Language Arts classes. Mr. Dittmar has shared his experience in classrooms and other venues across the nation - we look forward to his visit. Please contact Mrs. Hester if you have any questions.

8th Grade Field Trip Scholarships Available
This is a reminder that the 8th grade will be taking a field trip to Besty-Jeff Penn 4-H Center in Reidsville either October 13-15 or October 20-22. The cost of the field trip is $120 and includes meals.
Students will gain valuable team building, collaboration, leadership, and communication skills from the trip. Due to the cost of the trip, the school has worked closely with the PTSA to create a scholarship opportunity that will help to alleviate the cost of the trip for 50 students.
By working at the PTSA Thrift Store, 50 students can earn up to $100 for the field trip in October. (All money will be paid to the school. No money will be paid to individuals for any reason.) All hours worked at the PTSA Thrift Store must be completed between now and September 30.
Click on the links below for more information about the trip and also information regarding the opportunity to earn scholarship money. If you would like for your student or family to participate in this opportunity to earn scholarship money toward the trip, please contact the school to provide his/her name. Feel free to contact the school with any additional questions.
