##### Early AM due date
Each nine weeks I assign an early AM due date. This due date is optional, but I give out reward passes to those who complete 100% of their AM by this date. There is no penalty if a student does not complete 100% by this early due date. However, if they do, they will receive a reward pass that the student can use as either a No Homework Pass or add 5 points to any assignment. They can use the rewards each nine week or save them to combine together in future nine weeks.

The early AM due date for this nine weeks is this Friday, September 22.

##### Mercy Knows No Boundaries August
Hernando Social Service Office, our six social service offices provide advocacy, adult life skills, emergency food, clothing, emergency gasoline and utility assistance for those living in poverty within the five counties in northwest Mississippi. The Hernando office services Hernando, Eudora and parts of Nesbit and Lake Cormorant. The sizzling summer temperatures have made for a long list of clients in need of utility assistance. Our social service ministers have also been busy working on the “Dress a Child” program assisting disadvantaged children with their school needs. Your Denim Day support will help keep homes cool, bellies full and get children ready for school!
