EINSTEIN MIDDLE SCHOOL WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2016 #34
TODAY WE HAVE PERIODS 1, 3, and 5!
OCTOBER IS RESPECT MONTH: “When we show our respect for other living things, they respond with respect for us." Native American Proverb
PIZZA & BOOKS: Pizza & Books meets TODAY after school. If you have not yet talked to Ms. Dame about attending, please do so right away or there might not be enough pizza! Go to Hang Time immediately after school to check in.
BAKING CLUB IS CANCELLED THIS WEEK: See you next time!
Scary Stories for brave listeners! Tomorrow night at the Richmond Beach library from 7-8:30pm, join local story-tellers as they share frightening, yucky, and true stories of shots and hauntings, followed by an open mic for audience members with a scary tale to tell. Refreshments will be served (to survivors). This program is not recommended for young or timid listeners.
VOLLEYBALL MEETING: Next Tuesday November 1st during the last 10 minutes of both 7th and 8th grade lunches there will be a Volleyball meeting in B-14 (Chef Room). If you have signed up to try out for volleyball this year you need to attend the meeting. Looking forward to seeing you there! Ms. DuBois
Need some help with your homework? Or, a nice comfortable place to do your homework so that you have time to chill when you get home? How about a place to get together with your group to work on a class project right after school so you don’t have to coordinate at someone’s house? Maybe just too many missing assignments? Come to Einstein’s Tiger Tutoring! It happens on Tuesday and Thursday, right after school in the library. We have teachers and high school tutors at Tiger Tutoring to help you understand and get your homework done, even before you get home! Be sure to check in with Hang Time in the cafeteria and join us for Tiger Tutoring! Any questions please see Ms. Teeters.
OVERDUE LIBRARY BOOKS! There are many people who have overdue library books. Please renew/return them right away as other people are often waiting to read them. 8th grade book club #1 is done, so turn those books in!
Way to go Tigers! Students who participated in season 1 sports (football, cross country, softball) please meet in the gym on 11/3 for your awards ceremony. Please invite your family to attend. This is a special event for students who have participated in season 1 sports. Go Tigers!
FUTURE FOOTBALL TIGERS CLASS OF 2022 MEETING: This is for you! Thinking about playing football next year? Representing Einstein in the orange and blue? Come to a lunch meeting Thursday, October 27 at 12:15 in Room E 11 to find out more about the team for next year and to learn how you can ride the football bus with the team on 11/2, get free admission and watch the district championship game at the Shoreline stadium. Go Tigers!
Spirit Week is this week: Get ready to show some spirit! Visit the ASB Photo Booth in the SAC during lunch to get your photo taken in your Spirit Wear. Spirit Days are:
Wednesday - Twin/Group day, so dress like a friend or two.
Thursday - Throwback Thursday, wear something from a past decade.
Friday - Halloween Costumes.
In order to make sure we truly have school spirit make sure your Spirit Wear is school appropriate, meets our dress code expectations, and will allow for a successful learning environment.
On Friday you can wear your Halloween costumes all day, and on Fridays we always encourage everyone to wear Einstein PRIDE gear or to celebrate our Seahawks. That goes for this Friday as well! In order to have a safe and productive day, students can choose to wear costumes that meet the following guidelines:
We need to see your faces. Masks or costumes that cover your identity are not allowed.
Costumes or props should not allude to violence, gore or anything that is sexually explicit. This includes fake guns, swords, bows and arrows, lots of blood, etc.
Costumes should be fun and respectful of all cultures.
Holidays and celebrations focusing on “dressing up” can unfortunately also perpetuate stereotypes. At Einstein, we want to foster fun, creativity, inclusivity and respect. It’s extremely important that costumes don’t portray or perpetuate stereotypes or denigrate cultures or genders. Cultures are not costumes. Halloween costumes are only fun or funny when they don’t hurt or make fun of other people (in any way) or perpetuate stereotypes! If you have a question about whether your costume is appropriate, please ask an adult at Einstein and talk to your family.
SEASON TWO SPORTS SIGN UPS: Interested in Boys Basketball or Girls Volleyball? Now is the time to sign up! Stop by the main office and add your name to the list. Sports paperwork packets are available in the office and on the Einstein website. If you have already done a sport this year, you do not need to turn in paperwork. Just be sure you add your name to the sign up sheet. The first practice is November 7th. Go Tigers!
