LIBRARY PASS NEEDED FOR ENTRY AT LUNCH

In our effort to allow studying  in the library, we are instituting a pass system for entry during lunch recess.  There has been too much noise, fooling around, abuse of the library facility and library staff.  So, much as we would like to open the library to all, we are asking you to get a pass from your teacher or staff person to enter during lunch recess.  Thank you. - G. Kobayashi

CLASS OF 2009 CAP AND GOWN ORDER PACKETS

ATTENTION ALL SENIORS!!!  It's time to order your cap and gown for Commencement in June!  Pick-up your order packets from Mrs. Sakai-Kawada's room in GRAC on Tuesday, October 21 and Wednesday, October 22 during morning recesses ONLY.  You must pick-up your own packet and sign for it - you may not pick-up for someone else or have anyone else pick-up for you!  If you do not pick up a packet, you won't be able to order a cap or gown.  Remember:  if you do not have a cap and gown, you CANNOT walk the line at Commencement! - K. Sato
