**** PLEASE NOTE…. Our attendance to this festival will be determined by the end of school today. The students have not done their part to be prepared for this contest. My decision will be based on whether I feel they can be successful and not be embarrassed. I am leaving a few students at home for lack of preparation and behavior. I will be contacting those parents specifically at the end of the day.
If there are any other questions or concerns that have not been discussed, feel free to contact me.
