---- Misc ----
Martinsville students must sign new membership agreement
ASAP. For insurance purposes, students must sign a new membership agreement
before they are allowed on the floor for any other classes. Thanks to everyone
who has been offering help as we move into the new martinsville school. Your
support has been greatly appreciated. Special thanks goes to Richard Allison,
Tyler Sipla, Mike Ksenak, Chuck Grimmett and his brother James, Rick Neel, the
Yoshidas, and Jennifer Sieg for all the manual labor.
Back to school stuff:
As we did last year, we will be sending a letter
home with our students to take to their teachers at the start of the school
year. It basically states we share a common interest in the students and to let
us know how we can help. We do not mean to circumvent your parental authority,
but merely want to offer our assistance and to stress the importance of school.
