White A Day

Detention with Mr. Gross/215





We will be removing iMovie on many iPads (all freshman and some upper classmen) in the next few days in order to run an important update. All students should back up any iMovie project right away to their camera roll and then plan to import them back to iMovie when we have finished the update. Any unsaved work will be lost in iMovie.



Sauce, Songs and SO.ME Paddling

The school store now has three local products for sale:   Red Riot Hot Sauce, Autographed Music CD’s by Dana Gross and autographed copies of Kim Bennett’s new Kayaking book!  (Music and books both generously donated)  Get them all while they are hot… (Especially the sauce!)
