Happy New Year Iron Families!
As we start the new year, our school needs some refreshing too! In our first week back, we ask if you could bring in these items:
- Middle school families bring in boxes of tissues (Kleenex brand has Boxtops)
- High school families bring in large packages of toilet paper (Scott brand has Boxtops)
- For any one who wants to, the teachers also ask for loose leaf paper (college ruled), pencils, and white board markers (these can be purchased in bulk at smile.amazon.com). Review your son's own stock of school supplies to also be sure he has enough notebooks, pens/pencils, and paper to start the new semester.
And as previously announced, we are having a Work Day on Saturday Jan 6 to spruce up our school and to redesign one of our rooms. Please see our sign-up on SignUpGenius for the list of projects and more details about that day. We will start at the school at 10:00 am except for one group who will meet at our storage unit on Durant Rd at 9:00. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0449a4a629abf85-family
