Spanish Club will be holding its next meeting on Tuesday November 20 after school in Room 207 until 4:45. We’ll be watching the Movie The Book of Life, drinking Mexican Sodas and eating Popcorn. Come Join the fun!

iPad Update:  The iPad update has been cleared by the State for testing! We are asking EVERYONE (teachers included) to update their school issued iPad.

To do this, go to:
Settings>General>Software Update (iPads less than 50% charged need to be plugged in to a power source)

The updates can be done at home (or school, but you can’t use the iPad until the update is finished).  Once the iPad is updated, it’s also a good idea to update frequently used apps as well (Canvas, Notability, etc…)

Learn to Play Lacrosse:  No Equipment or experience needed.  Starts on Tuesday night, November 27th and runs through February 2019 in the Darby Field House.  Email Coach Sayer for more info.  sayerske@gmail.com

Class Books:
During the third quarter, Language Arts classes will be reading chosen books from the teachers and curriculum team. I will be doing a presale of these books in the media center from November 26-December 9 for students. Book prices are below:

Honors Language Arts 8: All American Boys by Brendan Kiely and Jason Reynolds –$10.00
Language Arts 8: The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton — $9.00
Language Arts 7: A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park — $7.00

The book will be at Heritage when your student returns from winter break if you choose to purchase the book from the media center. It is not required that you purchase the book from Heritage but it is offered for your convenience. If you don’t purchase from HMS your student will be expected to purchase the book on their own for next quarter.

Please send your student to the media center during the presale dates with a check or cash if you choose to purchase itand I will record their name for delivery after winter break! Please feel free to reach out to Miss Stout at emily_stout@hboe.org  if you have any questions!
