Friday Morning Announcements
January 24, 2020
Good morning IB college-bound scholars! This is Natalia Rodriguez, your ASB President, and special guest Communicators with your Friday Morning Announcements:
For the month of January, our IB Learner Profile Attribute is Principled: Principled people act with integrity and honesty, and have a strong sense of fairness, justice and respect for the dignity of other individuals, groups and communities. Principled people take responsibility for their own actions and the consequences that accompany them. Be a Principled IB student today and every day, and you, your class, your, school, your family, your friends, your community, your nation and your world will be better off and more peaceful because of it.
8th Graders! The 8th grade shirts are here! These shirts have everyone’s name on the back, and you will be allowed to wear them every Friday! They are on sale for $10 in room B49. Come by your shirt before we run out of your size!
This week we begin the Pennies for Patients campaign here at El Sereno Middle School. This is a way to donate money towards leukemia research. Each student will receive a box to take home to collect pennies and any other change. We ask every teacher to collect the pennies for their period 1 class, and every Friday Leadership will come by to pick up and count them. The first period class with the most money collected will win a pizza party!
Today is Lawn Chair Friday, and we have a combined lunch schedule! Students will be receiving their wristbands period 2 today, and with it can leave 5 minutes early from period 5 to get their lunch early. See you then!
Valentine’s Day is in two weeks! Send a Valentine Gram to that special someone. Valentine’s Candy Grams are now for $1 with a Valentine tattoo sticker or $3 with a long-stem rose. They will be delivered on Valentine’s Day. Keep an eye out for Leadership’s table in the purple commons during lunch. You can also buy one from Ms. Jauregui in room B49 or from a Leadership student.
On Friday, February 7th we will be having our next big dance: the Cupid’s Ball! It will be from 3:30pm to 5:00pm in the small gym. Tickets will be on sale for $1 at the Student Store, from room B49, or at the Leadership table by the Purple Commons. Various clubs will also be selling food during the dance, so dress to impress: come looking sharp. Remember to turn in your completed permission slip to Ms. Jauregui in room B49 before the dance to come into the dance first in the VIP line.
Safe and Civil Reminder – Random Metal Search Policy: This is a reminder to all students that in compliance with LAUSD Bulletin 5424.1, we conduct daily random metal searches of classrooms and lockers in order to keep our school safe. Additionally, if you ever see or hear that somebody has something in his/her possession that he/she shouldn’t have, do the right thing and tell an adult immediately! If you see something, say something. Thank you in advance for your help in keeping El Sereno safe. Be Respectful, be Responsible, be Safe, and be Jaguar Paws-itive.
Jaguar Paws: Earn your Jaguar Paws by demonstrating the skills, qualities and characteristics of IB Learners. On Fridays we raffle off prizes to lucky students who have earned and turned in their Jaguar Paws to the Main Office. Good luck to everyone!
Thank you for your attention and have a great day!
