Monday Afternoon Bowling in Ellsworth!!

On January 10 many HGS Middle School students will have their afternoon classes off! Folks who have zero demerits and have had no detentions are eligible to participate in The Merit Trip; Ineligible folks will have classes as usual.

You'll need $5.50, the cost for bowling 2 strings and renting the shoes. You will need to bring a bagged lunch and drink as well. Food and drink are available at the bowling alley but you will need $$ to purchase those goodies.

Have your folks sign your permission slip ASAP.

7L Luncheon Friday!

I will bring a homemade tomato soup to school this Friday. We'd planned a holiday snack before the break but Mother Nature had other plans.

Those of you who volunteered to bring grilled cheese sandwiches OR ice tea OR dessert...please remember to bring those goodies on Friday.

We'll have this treat during our class on Friday. You may still want your hot lunch so feel free to sign up for lunch.
