Chairs Suzanne Rose and Andy Chan, along with their team of volunteers, have been busy planning and soliciting wonderful items for the auctions: getaway homes, fine dining, one-of-a-kind experiences, and great parties. Be on the lookout for information on pre-auction and post-auction events, as well, including a wine-pull party and shopping days. If you would like to volunteer or have an item to donate, please contact Suzanne, suzannekrose1@gmail.com, or Andy, andychanwues@yahoo.com.

POMS is proud of our parent involvement and grateful for the generous gifts given by our parents and community. With the funds raised at this event and others, the PTO is able to provide grant money for learning tools ranging from plasticized rats for dissection to math textbooks, from cheerleading mats to theatre lighting. This year, our special emphasis will be raising funds for technology; our goal: mobile laptop carts to provide learning for tomorrow’s

We hope you can join for a great night of fun- and fund-raising and if you aren’t able to, consider other ways to support the school.

3-2-1 Rule for 8th Grade



Parents, we have some exciting celebratory activities planned for our 8th graders in May. To be eligible to participate in those activities, your student must maintain a good conduct record. Administrators have visited with all of the students and informed them of the disciplinary actions that will prohibit them from taking part in those fun activities.

Students cannot have:

3 school-wide detentions (teacher detentions turn into school-wide detentions if not served) or
2 ISS incidents or
1 out of school suspension

If students accrue any one of the above disciplinary actions, they will not be able to participate in the Schlitterbahn field trip or attend the 8th grade party.

This policy is in effect as of 2 pm on January 21, 2015 but does not include any previous infractions. Everyone starts off with a clean slate as of that date and time. Please talk to your students about the importance of maintaining a good conduct record!
