The school calendar, including volleyball games, is available on our website, www.bbcalatrobe.com. Just as a reminder, the first quarter ends October 18th and it will be a noon dismissal and there will be no school October 19th. October 22 is an Academic Release Day – students who achieve honor roll for the first quarter will not have school that day. Staff will be attending CEC (for continuing education) on October 31st and there will not be school for students that day.
This Thursday is National Taco Day. We will have a taco lunch available to students that will include 2 tacos, Spanish rice, a snack, and a drink for $4. Additional tacos will be able to be purchased for $1. We are sending home an order form that must be turned by Wednesday so that we can purchase all the necessary ingredients. Lunches can be paid for on Thursday, but the order forms must be turned in tomorrow. We will still have pizza day on Friday for those who prefer to not get tacos or would like to do both.
There is a school revival scheduled for October 15-17. A special guest speaker, Sam Robinson, will be here for chapel services each of those days. Students will have a little less time for school work those three days and should plan accordingly.
Please continue to send in Box Tops for Education and Chick-Fil-A receipts from Eastgate and Westmoreland Mall.
The annual Spaghetti Dinner will be on November 9th. We are planning to have vendors and dessert auctions again this year. We will be asking all of our 7th-12th grade students to help serve. We will also ask our families to donate items as we get closer to the event.
Fund Raiser – We try not to do too many fund raisers throughout the year. This year, rather than candles, we will be selling Amish dips and jellies. We will start the sales at the Spaghetti Dinner, where we will have samples available, and continue selling through the month of November. Ordered items will be available approximately two weeks before Christmas.
This month’s Scripture memory passage is Psalm 86:1-10.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
