It's definitely been a hard Winter for all, but each passing week brings us closer to Spring. Will the thermometer ever reach 40 degrees again? Keep your snow shovels and ice-melt handy, and remember, Valentine's Day is Feb.14. St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner.
February is a busy month, so let's take a look at the schedule. Keeping with the usual format, I'll start with those items that apply to both of the junior high schools. On Feb. 5 report cards will be issued. There is no school from Feb. 16 through 20. Parent-teacher conferences will be held on Feb. 10, so you should check with your children for the details. On Feb. 27, the National Spanish Exam will be given to those participating Grade 9 students.
