Before the curtain rises, the 8th Grade teachers are hosting a final Civil Rights Trip Meeting from 5:30-6:30pm in the ALA cafeteria. This required meeting is the last one before the Monday, November 18th, departure. If your family is unable to attend, please contact Eddie Rios, Assistant Principal, to schedule an alternate time to meet at the school to review trip information.
Also, our high school team is hosting a H-E-B Foundation Camp pre-trip meeting for 10th and 11th grade families on Thursday, November 7, at 6:00pm in the ALA at Fox Tech library. At the meeting we will review the packing list, trip expectations, medication guidelines, and our final itinerary for the November 20-22nd trip.
On Friday, the Euclid bike rodeo will take place! All students are welcome to participate. Bike drop off will begin at 7:30am while the event begins at 9:00am. On this morning, students may take their bikes to the gym and then return to breakfast or the playground. Please use duct tape and a sharpie pen to label your child’s bike with name, village, and grade. If you would like to volunteer or act as a judge, please email Jeremiah Birmingham at email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, on Wednesday, November 13th, we are hosting a High School Soccer Informational Meeting for students and their families at 5:30pm in the ALA FT cafeteria.
