There will be a brief parent meeting for baseball parents directly after tryouts in the cafeteria for anyone that can make it.
As warm weather approaches and students start shopping for spring clothes, I just want to remind everyone of the dress code in our middle school located on page 15 and 16 of the student handbook. Homeroom teachers will be reviewing this with students.
"Students may be asked to change clothes, given clothes to wear, asked to call home to have other clothes brought to school, or sent home to change into appropriate clothes for school. If a student is asked to change clothes, parents will be notified. Students wearing inappropriate clothing that are unable to acquire a change of clothes will not be able to go to class. An appropriate supervised space will be found for the student to spend the day at school but not in class. It is strongly suggested that students keep a change of clothes in
their locker in the event their attire is questioned. A second violation to the dress code will result in a detention."
Softball and baseball tryouts will take place in the gym afterschool today and tomorrow. Track practice will begin today for any interested in track.
Come watch Annie tonight at 6:00!! Our students have worked so hard and are ready to perform.
There will be an informational meeting for parents and students wishing to participate in the Spring Track season. This meeting will take place at the Public Library on Thursday, March 31st at 6:00. Our coach, Mr. Walton, and assistant. Mr. Grant, will hand out schedules, handbooks and share any other pertinent information.
We wanted you to be aware of information provided to us by the Maine School Nurse Consultant:

Good luck to our jazz band as they compete in the state competition tomorrow afternoon. Our K-4 students had the pleasure of watching their dress rehearsal this afternoon. I wish I had pictures but I was too mesmerized by their performance and too happy watching us have a normal assembly that I forgot all about it!
