WE NEED YOU TO BE THERE!!! Thursday evening at 5:30, there will be an organizational meeting of the Boise City Parent/Teacher Organization. I am challenging you to attend this meeting-this organization is the “link” that we need for a successful school year. Officers will be elected and several projects will be discussed. This one hour will be the best investment of time that you can make and this organization certainly reiterates the focus of the 2008-2009 school year which is to “Push the bar above the line will be the goal in 2009”. I have enlisted the help of individuals in the community to assist with a telephone campaign to encourage the parents of high school students to attend this meeting. I am going to offer the following rewards for membership: if a class achieves 90 to 100% membership-pizza party, 75%-DQ ice cream cone, 50%-10 minute early-out to lunch. This organization is open not only to parents but anyone in the community who is interested in the education of students at Boise City Schools.
PLEASE bring your $5.00 and be a part of this important organization.
Friday night will be the opening of the 2008 football season as the Wildcats host the Springfield Longhorns. Good luck to the team players and coaches as they compete in this athletic activity. Kick-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
A reminder to the parent(s) of sophomore and senior students: Sarah Stone, Josten’s representative, will be here this afternoon in the Wildcat Pride room for the ordering of class rings and senior graduation supplies and memorabilia. Class ring ordering will begin at 2:00 p.m. with the senior ordering scheduled for 2:45. Parent(s) are encouraged to attend.
