*As we head towards the final week of the semester, parents are encouraged to monitor student grades through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.  Speak daily with your child about their progress.  One of the most significant issues for grades lower than expected is students not turning in their work or turning work in late.  Students are encouraged to use some type of planner/organizer to keep track of assignments and rehearsals with the busy schedule of DSA.  Please contact the teachers directly for issues or concerns with student grades.
*Thanks to Ms. Posley, Dr. Pottinger, and Beta Club for a Campus Clean-Up on Oct. 30.  Students cleaned desks, gathered trash from the lawn, and other “tidy tasks”.

*The Grounds Committee will be doing a campus clean-up as part of Scenery Saturday to prepare for Dark Night.  If you signed up to be on the Grounds or Campus Beautification Committee, please consider volunteering for Scenery Saturday on NOVEMBER 12.  Please bring yard tools! (rakes, tree pruning tools, hand tools, string strimmers, etc.) Thank you in advance.
