Get Yourself Some Scrip!

We only have 3 weeks of school left (WHAT?!?!) and we need to sell all of our scrip before then.  

Here's what we have: 

  • Fred Meyer/QFC - $50, $100 (only two left!), $200 (only two left!), $300 (only one left!)
  • PCC - $20 (we have 13's the time to buy one if you haven't yet.  Recharge it at the store!)
  • Tully's (two!), Great Harvest (four!), Starbucks (one!) and Snoose Junction (five!) - all at $10

I'll be at the Scrip table M-F a bit before 8:30am and Tracy will be there Thursday after school until they're sold out!

Thanks for supporting our school!

2011-2012, 2012-2013 Academic Calendars Approved; Changes to Mid-Winter Break for 2012-2013

The School Board has approved 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 academic calendars. Mid-winder break will be shortened in 2012-2012.

The main change to the calendar is that in 2012-13, mid-winter break will be reduced from a full Monday-Friday week to four days over Presidents Day weekend – including the Friday before the weekend and the Monday of Presidents Day, which is already a holiday and a non-school day.

As a result of the shorter mid-winter break, the last day of school in 2012-13 will be June 14, assuming no snow make-up days.

Thank you to Seattle Works Volunteers!
