    Important message to REMOTE 8th grade students: You may come to school and join in the farewell activities on Friday (tomorrow) in-person!

The activities are: Yearbook distribution and signing in homeroom, then the 8th grade farewell assembly, then movies in the various Homerooms, and finally field day stations/rotations.
