Charging into the Future: Week of March 20 

Good Afternoon Banoak Families!

It is so hard to believe that tomorrow will start the fourth nine weeks of school! Report cards will go home on Friday. Upon return, please send in two stamps so that we can mail all report cards at the end of the year.

Spring Pictures will also take place on Friday. If you wish to buy pictures, you may send in payment with the picture form that was sent home. You may also go to https://www.carolinaphoto.net (use the Job Key: 7CJ8VSFD) to order pictures online. If ordering online, Carolina Photography has asked that you submit your order by Thursday morning!

Catawba County Schools will hold a virtual session titled Preventing the Summer Slide on Thursday night, March, 23 for all parents who would like ideas on how to support academics during the summer months. This session will start at 6:00 pm. Please use the link shared on ParentSquare to join.

Lastly, we will be holding our 100 Year Celebration on Saturday, April 1, from 1:00-3:00 pm. Please call the school to RSVP by this Friday, March 24. We hope to see you there!

Have a great evening!
