ETCA 2 Minute Tuesday

It’s Tuesday, October 1st    

ATTENTION:

Spring Creek Spirit Night- No need to cook dinner next Tuesday (10/8)!! Join us for supper at Spring Creek from 5-9 and a portion of all proceeds come back to the school—plus bonus: teachers and admin will be handing out the rolls! So come enjoy some great food, fellowship, and support the school. 

Trunk or Treat Candy Collection- National Honor Society is planning a Trunk or Treat on Oct 29th from 5:30-8:30p.  Please mark your calendars now.  We are asking parents to donate a bag of candy (which can be sent to your child’s teacher or dropped off with Mrs. Jackie) to help support NHS as they plan such a fun night for all our kids! They are planning games, trunk or treatings and a hay ride! 

Lunch Ordering- Don’t’ forget to place your lunch orders for the month of October. Orders close on Thursday evening for the following week. 

See you at the Pole-  We had a wonderful turn out – thank you to everyone who attended. 

German Exchange Students- We are in need of ONE more family to house a German student from Oct 13- Nov 3. If you’re able to, please reach out to Mrs. Manley or Mrs. Jones asap.  We will have a Host Meeting for all families hosting our international students on October 7th at 5:30. 

 

St. Jude’s Archery Shootout- We had a ton of fun shooting for St. Jude’s.  We had 9 MS and 10 HS students shoot, plus a slew of admins and a few teachers.  The secret is out: Mr. Williams has some hidden archery talent as he out shot ALL high school students and barely lost to Bella and Zade Z by one point.  Thanks to everyone who helped us raise over $200 for St. Jude’s. 

 

Senior Cap/Gown/Tux/Drape- Tomorrow at 8am will be senior cap/gown and tux/drape pictures which are used in the yearbook and graduation program.   Proofs and order forms will come home in late October so you can view your picture before buying.    

 

Dress Code Enforcement- Thank you parents for partnering with us regarding dress code enforcement- we have seen a significant decline of violations in the past week.  I firmly believe our communication (and maybe the threat of ugly old basketball shorts) were effective in curbing this problem. If in doubt, please review our school’s dress code policy (http://www.etca.org/Dress_Code_-_2019.pdf).

 

PSAT Testing- Our Sophomores and Juniors will be taking the PSAT on October 16 from 8-12:30. Freshman may request to take it if they’d like the test taking experience by contacting Mrs. Manley by Oct 9th.  

 

Bonus Stamp- The first 3 Middle Schoolers and the first 3 High Schoolers that come to Mrs. Jackie or Mrs. Laura and say you read the email will get a bonus passport stamp!!   Shhhhhh....Don’t tell anyone- I want to see who reads my emails.
