Hi, I am wondering why the seventh-grade classes haven’t gotten new Chromebooks when the other grades get new Chromebooks and when the Chromebooks the seventh grader’s old ones haven’t worked reliably for the seventh graders last year. And Shen probably has the money for new ones too.

A.  The Chromebooks assigned to current seventh graders were new last year, when the students received them as sixth graders.  If your child’s device is not functioning properly, please ask your child to visit one of the Chromebook Care Centers in the middle school.

We really appreciated Koda allowing kids to wear clothes lighter weight clothes to the 8th grade concert last week, because of the hot weather. As a mom though, there quite a few girls wearing really, really short dresses and skirts. I’m not one to be hyper-vigilant with these things, but the band/orchestra teachers need to let the girls and their families know that from the audience’s vantage point sitting below leaves them really exposed. Please, please pass this on.
