Daily Bulletin Yellow Wednesday, December 13, 2017

*US & MS Students:  From the PE & Athletic Depts: During Winter Break, the locker rooms inside Dooney Field House and Graham Athletic Center, will be cleaned out. Any clothes and footwear left out on the floor or benches will be trashed or donated to charity.  Make sure all of your valuables and personal items are LOCKED inside your assigned locker. Also, this is a good time to go through all of the clothes, shoes and other items that have accumulated in the barrels and corners of the room. Our maintenance staff will NOT be going inside any lockers.

 

Upper School:

*Please join in lighting Hanukkah candles in the front section of the library at 7:55 am on Thursday, December, l4, and Friday, December 15. All are welcome!

 

*Mandatory PC lacrosse meeting Thursday at 3:30 in room 204 in the Middle School. If you cannot attend, you need to see Coach McDonough.

 

*Portfolio Night features performers who demonstrate a high level of ability and training in the arts in a one-night only event on the Kurtz Center stage. This year, the event will be held on Tuesday, January 23 at 7:00 in the evening. Anyone who is interested in auditioning for one of the open performance spots should contact Ms. Bender at jessicabender@penncharter.com by Thursday, December 14.

 

*Drop/add for semester 2 courses will take place from January 2 to January 10, 2018. All drop/add slips must be completed and submitted by 3:15pm on January 10. If you are considering changes to any of your year-long courses, please be sure to consult your teacher(s) and your advisor. There are policies in place around these changes of which you need to be aware before making any potential decisions for year-long courses. If you have questions or concerns about changes in yearlong courses, please see Mr. Larrabee.

 

*This week Penn Charter will be having our first ever Holiday E-waste Drive!  Bring in your broken or obsolete electronics between today and the 15th.   Drop off locations will be in the Lower, Middle or Upper School buildings for your convenience.  LOOK FOR THE BLUE RECYCLING CANS MARKED FOR E-WASTE.  Signs indicating what may be recycled will be on the cans and posted around the campus.

 

*The Upper School Art Club will be hosting a Holiday Art Party after school on Wednesday, December 13, from 3:30 to 5:00pm; this event is open to both Upper School and Middle School students as well as faculty (drop-ins are welcome)! There will be a variety of projects (cards, ornaments, origami, and more!) that will be accessible to all holidays of the season. Hot cocoa and other snacks and beverages will be available for all attendees, and seasonal music will be played. It would be a great help if all interested students and faculty, both Upper School and Middle School, would RSVP by e-mailing Al Armstrong (aarmstrong@penncharter.com); an RSVP is not necessary to attend—it just makes sure that we’ll have the necessary supplies. Hope to see you there, and have a wonderful holiday season!
