The 8A Team created their annual Sept. 11 banners to commemorate and inform students about the tragedy, for which this year's eight graders are too young to remember.
All teachers are encouraged to do lunchtime supervision, but Mrs. Michelle Cruz (left) and Mrs. Melinda Rolinski were happy to supervise under the rain on Sept. 10.
