Washington DC Hoodies

We will be ordering our Washington DC students hoodies, instead of t-shirts like we originally planned. Please make sure your 7th grader has told his/her Social Studies teacher (Buckner, Civils, or Kennedy) the adult size that your 7th grader wears. The hoodies will be distributed at the Washington DC Parent/Student Meeting on Tuesday, February 4th at 6:00pm in the OMMS Cafeteria.

5th/Final DC Payment

Final DC payment is due by Wednesday, January 15, 2020. Several students did not pay December’s payment, so December and January payments will be due no later than January 15th.

All balances must be paid by this date! Email Mrs. Kennedy at jkennedy@shelbyed.org for your student’s account balance.

DC Rooming Request by 12/16/19

7th Graders – Please stop by Mrs. Kennedy’s classroom (D – 6) to give her your list of classmates you would like to room with on the Washington DC trip. You are providing a request.
