This is the first of several surveys related to Comic Con on Feb. 17. We will be playing Fan’ly Feud. Teams of five will compete to see who can form the best Fan’y—- Survey Says? Good answers! The first one hundred responses to this survey will be counted toward our game show. Take the survey and then tell your friends to do the same.

 Group Photos are Thursday, November 16, 2017 in the small gym.  Ask your sponsor or Ms. Smith for the time of your photo.  Please leave your classes 5 minutes before the scheduled time for your picture–we will most likely not be able to wait for stragglers as we have to keep to a very rigid schedule. Please see your sponsor about what to wear.  See you then!
