Christmas Parade

We have been asked to participate in the Bowling Green Christmas Parade on December 16th. We need to know by December 1st if you are able to participate. We are also looking for parent volunteers to participate in the parade.

We will meet on December 14th after school to prepare for this.

The meeting for December 6th has been cancelled due to today’s meeting.

Paperwork for the convention was passed out today. Please check your student email account for copies of the paperwork that was passed out.

Leadership Summit

Are you interested in attending the Leadership Summit on November 2nd and 3rd? We have the opportunity to take 8 students to represent Caroline Middle School at the Summit.

In order to be considered you need to write an essay. The essay must have 5 total paragraphs. One introductory paragraph, a closing paragraph and three supporting paragraphs in the middle.

The topic is to identify a need in your community. What can we do to support the need? Can it be a service project?

If you are chosen then the cost to attend will be $130 for students and $80 for chaperones.

Essays are due by September 20th.

T-Shirt design

The convention theme this year is “BETA on My Mind.” If you are interested in entering your T-Shirt design then we need it by the next meeting.

The T-Shirt is judged on Interpretation and Illustration of the Theme, Craftsmanship (Workmanship put into creating the banner), and Originality, Color, Contrast, & Creativity.

I look forward to seeing your designs.
