On this day in history:

On this day in 1969, America’s first automatic teller machine (ATM) makes its public debut, dispensing cash to customers at Chemical Bank in Rockville Center, New York. ATMs went on to revolutionize the banking industry, eliminating the need to visit a bank to conduct basic financial transactions. By the 1980s, these money machines had become widely popular and handled many of the functions previously performed by human tellers, such as check deposits and money transfers between accounts. Today, ATMs are as indispensable to most people as cell phones and e-mail.

Volleyball tryouts start THIS FRIDAY at 3:15 pm in the gym.  In order to tryout, you must have turned in 5 forms to Ms. Couchot in MK 12 or Student Services.  They are the physical, emergency form, agreement to participate in athletics, concussion and head injury form, and the sca parent review form.  If you participated in the Volleyball Clinic before school started, you only turned in the physical and emergency form and you still have three more forms to turn in.  Turn in your additional forms by tomorrow to make sure you are on the “cleared list.”  See Ms. Couchot TODAY if you have questions.  Both 7th and 8th graders may come in to MK-12 during your lunch today to ask questions.


The main library is now OPEN before school & after-school to students to read, study or do homework, or to use the computers for school work.  Come check OUT some great books to start off the NEW school year.  Get ready and listen for more details about our monthly library challenge starting next week.
