5th Graders can earn a bike!

  Once again Bud Clary is sponsoring a bike give-away for each 5th grader that has perfect attendance for the entire year! That means no tardies, no excused or unexcused absences, no missed class time at all. This includes not leaving early after the winter pro-gram. If you are in 5th grade this is something to work towards!
