Don't forget to turn in your late and overdue books to the library. Failure to do so could result in the loss of privileges (Top Dog Day, Promotion) and even fines for replacing the missing books. See Miss Banuelos in the library today if you have an issue.

We will be taking our second semester trip to St. Mary's Food Bank on April 30th. This will fill the 8th Grade community service requirement and is also a great way to help out those in need! That will be a Saturday, and the bus will be departing the school shortly after noon. Students need a permission slip and $3 (to pay for the bus). Contact Mr. Borunda or Mrs. Madrid if you are interested in joining us. We have room for 40 and spots are filling up fast!
