We are depending on you all to help us buy furnishings for the two new classrooms being built this summer!  We can build the classrooms, but  they will have no desks or chairs or shelves or anything without your help!!  Orders are prepaid and need to be turned in by Monday, March 18th (no later than Wednesday, March 20).  Need another order form?  We have them sitting out at the front desk.  I am ordering hanging baskets (beautiful and at ridiculously low prices) and some big patio tubs for Arcadia’s front entrance!  But you can order plants for your garden as well as flats of flowers.  Please help us reach our goal of $10,000!!  Email or call with any questions!  The order forms are attached.

Nathan Wolff from Purple Advisory is hosting a Scavenger Hunt in the school related to The Lightning Thief (middle school novel this quarter).  He has carefully hidden 12 cards around the building.  All of the cards have symbols on them that represent the Gods of Olympus.  The object is to simply collect all of the cards.

You will find the first clue near the front of the building.

Once you find the first card, look for a second clue near that card.  It will lead you to the next card and so on.  This pattern repeats until all 12 cards are found.  The clues are numbered in order 1-12.  Please don’t take cards out of order.  Be a good sport and only take one of the remaining cards, again, in order.

If you have questions, please talk to Nathan.  If you are one of the first 3 people to find all 12 cards, report immediately to Nathan to claim your prize.  Thank you and have a nice day!

March is Food Drive month and the CAC (Community Action Center) is launching food drives for the Northfield food shelf.  Please send non-perishable food and put in the box in the front entrance!  Thank you!
