Academic Games, a math competition club, is holding its informational meeting on Thursday, Nov. 12. from 3-4 pm.
This is the day we will learn how to play the equations game.
Permission slips will be sent home with students next week, and posted here as well.
We want the students to participate in as many clubs as they would like so they may belong to Chess Club, Future City, and Academic Games all at once. Attendance at practice and skills will influence who plays in tournaments. Both grades are encouraged to join!
If there are any parent volunteers who wish to join us at practices, please email me so I can give you more information.

If you are still having trouble signing up for conferences, ASK your student for help. They have been shown how in class.
There is a new page you can click on called “conferences”, as well as scrolling down three posts on the news feed and using that link.
The specialist “elective” teachers will ONLY be available for conferences on Wednesday, October 28 in room 103 from 3-6 pm.
You DO NOT need to schedule an appointment with them, as they are not part of the student-led portion.
This includes Mr. Bazzi, Mr. Theisen, Ms. McUmber, and Ms. Reed.
They will not be available on Monday, October 26 due to conferences at their other schools.
You may also contact them via email if you have any questions.
Here is the district’s policy for after-school activities.
Here is the note that students are receiving in Language Arts class today about conferences. Student Led Conferences Letter Home
