All residents and visitors are invited to a taping of NBC’s The Today Show this Thursday morning at 7 a.m. at Saranac Lake’s ice palace.

Saranac Lake Middle School students have the unique opportunity to participate in this community event. While we are aware that not all students are able to arrive at the ice palace between 7:00 and 7:15 a.m., we are making efforts to ensure all students have the opportunity to participate in some way. Students riding the bus will be dropped off at the Ice Palace instead of the school. Students who walk or are dropped off by car are asked to go to the ice palace as well. Homebase teachers will be AT THE ICE PALACE TO SUPERVISE STUDENTS. We will walk back to school following the event. Students are being asked to wear red, white, and blue, but please make sure they are dressed to be outside, regardless of the color. Please call the Middle School at (518) 891-4221 with questions or concerns.

Athlete Homework Haven is available to athletes in the computer lab every day until 4:00.

Homework Haven Is open to ALL students from 2:30-4:30 M-F
