*Key Club Service Opportunities
Key Club has two more opportunities to be of service, and they are somewhat intertwined. The Blueberry Festival blueberry pancake breakfast is a Kiwanis tradition and their big fundraiser for the year. The Kiwanis Club is Key Club’s parent club, and they ask us to plug into helping them by picking blueberries as well as helping make, serve, and clean up for the actual breakfast.
Please seriously consider helping with at least one of these activities:
- Blueberry picking: Saturday, June 2nd. Please meet at Jalapeno Tree at 7:00 a.m. They should return by 11:00 a.m.
- Blueberry Festival pancake breakfast: Saturday, June 9th, downtown Nac (right in front of the Spring & Prince boutique store). Shifts from 7:00-9:00 a.m. and 9:00 -11:00 a.m. Please let Mrs. Young know how your student can plug in to these opportunities! You may email her at email@example.com or call/text her at (919)-308-1203. Thank you in advance for your help!
All students need to please return all Regents library books to the library this week. If your student has lost a library book, we will need to bill you for the replacement.
*Used School Uniforms
We will have a used school uniform sale this summer at the school. If you have any used clothes you would like to donate to the school, please drop them by the school this summer during office hours.
*7th Grade Readiness Meeting
Each year we invite parents of the 6th graders to a 7th Grade Readiness Meeting, where we discuss the new changes and challenges involved in going into the 7th grade and offer suggestions and strategies for adapting and succeeding. This year’s meeting will be held in the fall, just after the start of the new school year. Please be on the lookout for details about this meeting later in the summer, toward the beginning of the 2018 school year. If you have questions, please feel free to see Mr. Bryant or Mr. Vermillion.

From the Headmaster
Summer vacation is coming. The change of pace. Carefree days. But not yet. So, in anticipation, here’s a little taste.
The Lake Isle of Innisfree
By William Butler Yeats
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s wings.
I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.
