Study Hall Reminder
Students are reminded that during their study hall periods, they are to be either in the lower commons, the Hive, the Media Center, or with a teacher. Please refrain from going to Satz during this time. While we understand you may want to stop in to visit past teachers, this poses a disruption at the middle school and interrupts their classes. Satz teachers would love to see you, but please do so after school hours. Thank you!
School pictures are in! If you have not yet picked up your school pictures, please see a study hall monitor this week to do so.
