There are Driver Ed students who need to get driving time in. Some of you will be turning 16 in the next few months.  At this time is does not seem to be an urgent matter for some of you.  So, Mr. Kapper is offering available times after school and on Saturday's to anyone who wants to drive regardless of when your birthday is.  See him to sign up.      


FBLA members who sold puffins:  They will be delivered THURSDAY during 8th hour!  You need to pick them up from Ms. Smith immediately after school.  They need to be kept frozen and there isn't enough room here at school (and Ms. Smith is NOT taking them home with her).
