LUNCH MEETING TODAY
Peer Tutors have their final meeting TODAY at lunch in the Learning Commons. See you there!
A silver ring was lost in the school. It looks like two rowing oars with the blades touching. The ring belongs to one of our CSI rowers, and it has very special meaning to her. If you have found the ring, please help her out and return it to the office.

Student Data & Year End Procedure
Good morning. Due to storage space issues on school computer servers, we are going to have to return to the practice of deleting all data on student home folders at the end of each year. If students have any data that they want to keep that is currently stored on the school servers, they must copy the files to their own devices by June 29, 2016. The data will be deleted at that point in time.
