In preparation for sending a representative to the Gallatin County 2016 Spelling Bee on Saturday, Feb. 27, Petra Academy will host our own 5th-7th grade version next Wednesday, Feb. 17, at 10:30 a.m. in the Petra Performance Hall. Parents and guests are invited to attend. For questions, contact your teacher or email Grammar Principal Mark Christofferson.
Whether you stick around after drop-off or come early for the Spelling Bee, Mr. Dunham and Mr. Christofferson invite you to have a “Second Cup” of coffee and get your re-enrollment questions answered next Wednesday morning, Feb. 17., in the cafeteria anytime between 8:30-10:30 a.m. Mr. Dunham is also looking for centrally-located families to host evening versions of this meeting, which he’s calling “Last Cup.” Families interested in hosting or attending these evening meetings should email Mr. Dunham with preferred dates and times.
