LIBRARY AIDES 

The library will be taking on student aides this year! We will fill two slots every period with 7th and 8th graders that are: responsible, have good attendance, are in good academic standing, and of course love to read. Please stop by the library and speak to Mrs. Hames for more information and an application if interested.

SIGN UP FOR THE PARENT CLOUD 

Please see the attachments for information on how access to the new TEAMS Parent Self-Serve in the Parent Cloud. Parents will access student grades using this method starting this year.

BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT 

Please join us for Back To School Night on Tuesday, September 9th from 6:00-8:00 pm. We will begin in the cafeteria for a PTA announcement and to learn more about our school Booster Clubs. Then, Mr. Llewellyn will speak in the Gym before we visit our students’ classrooms. You will visit the classes according to your student’s schedule. 

Please bring a copy of your student’s schedule. It will save you time! If needed, student schedules will be available in the cafeteria along the wall of windows.

GARDEN WORKDAY 

The Lamar Garden Committee will be hosting a Garden Workday on Saturday, September 6th from 9am to noon. The Lamar Garden is located along Burnet Road, between the Band Hall and the track. Projects will include mulching, weeding, watering and composting. Tools will be provided. Please bring a water bottle and a pair of gloves, and wear light, comfortable clothing. This is a great opportunity to earn community service hours, and is open to the public. Even an hour of your time would be much appreciated!
