Also, tomorrow is Friday, and that means the weekly Student Government Bake Sale will be up and running at lunch time. Items cost $1 each and proceeds go to the student activities fund. Of course, being reminded about the bake sale in a blog post is boring; it's much better when you can be reminded through song. Check out our Video Gallery for a live version of James Warren's Stanbridge classic, "The Bake Sale Song."
Student yearbook photos arrived today. The pictures will be sent home with your student this afternoon. If you would like to have a retake, or your student has not had their photo taken, please have your student come to school tomorrow, October 13, dressed for photos.
