Pick-up Time: 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm on Saturday. (Parent to join Cookout from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm).
Requirements to attend: Passing all classes with a 70 and above, before Thursday, September 29th (3:00 pm). Give enough time for teachers to grade. So that means, do not wait till the last minute to turn in work. I will run a grade check skyward grade check. If grades are not updated due to students not giving the teacher enough time, they will not be able to attend.
