KENNEDY HIGH SCHOOL: Eagle News is hot off the presses!

WEST MIDDLE SCHOOL: Students 'zapped' for being outstanding!

Students from West Middle School enjoyed the morning playing at Zap Zone on May 18. 

They played games, laser-tag and ate pizza for lunch.  This is one of two Academic Incentive Field Trips though the school year.  The first field trip was in December to Game On.  

In order for students to earn the field trip they must receive 80 percent or better on all four core classes (ELA, Math, SS, Science) exams in November and March.  They also have to receive 1's and 2's in citizenship with no missing class work or homework.
