The high school always puts on a fun assembly with prizes and booths for all of the clubs and extracurricular activities. The plan is to take all of the 9th-grade students and walk to the high school, but they will need a signed permission slip to go. The permission slips have been sent out in an email, but students can pick up a new copy in the counseling office if they need to.
