This week's newsletter is going out a bit early -- I know some folks are going out of town for the weekend and I wanted to reach out ahead of time. In writing this I'm reminded I used to send these out Friday afternoons rather than Sunday evenings. I'll try to switch back.
There are the usual notices:
- Conference Sign-Up sheets are in the office -- Thursday and Friday are the dates.
- Lost and Found will be donated (after we search for names) during the break.
- The trimester ended today!

Track & Field News from Mr. Nebert: The event is scheduled between noon and 2:30. We would need to leave school around 11:40 or so and will probably return by 2:45-3.
If you would like your student to participate please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Jackson track clinic is this Saturday from 1:00 – 3:30 pm. This is just a chance for the kids to see what track is about, no serious training. There will be five rotations: distance running (all on the Jackson grounds), field events (shot, discus & turbo jav), long jump (and possibly high jump if it’s nice and dry), sprints and relays, and hurdles. At least two of the Wilson coaches will be helping out and they are bringing high school track kids to help out with the different events so we’ll have some extra help. Dietrich is bringing Wilson Obegeide (silver medalist in the 1992 Olympics in Atlanta) to work with sprinters. We’ll start setting up around noon and I expect kids around 12:45. Hope to see you and some of your track stars on Saturday.
And another thought...
Namely, the first signs of Spring are emerging here on campus. I took a moment to snap a badly framed shot from the North corner of our campus yesterday (Brian Black I am not). The moment gave me time to reflect on how quickly this year is flying by. And things here really get going in the Spring -- Field Studies, Field Day, Talent Show, Music Concerts, District Arts Night, Promotion...hang on tightly!
