GRYPHON MISSION BRIEFING
For Wednesday, December 12, 2018 – N-day
School Mission – Boundless STEM: Learning & Leading
L&N Student Mission – #Own it!
· Freshman and Sophomores, if you need help catching up on some school work, drop by the STEM space any Wednesday morning at 8:15 to meet with students in the National Honors Society who can help you out! We'll have students representing each subject, even classes like Latin and AP Human Geography!
· Help out some classmates by taking this 3-question survey. Thank you!
· Good luck to the Boys’ Bowling Team – they bowl their first district tournament match today at 5:00. Go knock ‘em down guys! (the pins, that is!)
· Don’t forget to have your early dismissal permission forms signed by parents! You received them in N4 class on Friday and they are due back to the office by this Friday. Stop by the office to pick one up if you still need one.
· It is SGA WonderWeek - to finish the semester on a fun note! Everyone is invited to participate!
o Wednesday – Holiday Character Day – come as your favorite holiday character. Junior class is sponsoring a showing of “Elf” at 6:30 in the Commons for everyone, free!
o Thursday – Ugly Sweater Day
o Friday – Flannel Day – notice there are no pajama days listed. Let’s keep even the cozy fleece and other PJ’s at home, please!
· We have a student who lent a MacAir charger to someone in the Commons last Monday during Early Release time. It has not yet been returned. If you are the borrower, please return to the office so we can get it back to the owner!
· Gryphons, you can still purchase a yearbook for $70 until February 22nd! Order yours ASAP at jostensyearbooks.com to save $10 on your 2018-19 memories (and make sure to follow @STEMYB on twitter)!
· Ugly Sweater sweatshirts from the Junior Class (Class of 2020) for $20 are here! Pick yours up today to wear this Thursday!
Community & Guidance Ops:
· Seniors have you filed your FAFSA yet?
