Student Annoucements, Week of 12/11



Wrestling packets are now available in the main office.  All students 6-8 grade are eligible to join.  7th and 8th graders must have a sports physical on file.  The first practice will be on January 2nd.  If you have any questions, please see Coach Benjamin or Coach Mahr.  This is the last week before the break, so make sure you get your packet in soon!

8th Graders: the deadline for the 8th grade trip to Washington DC and New York City has been extended to December 15th. Spots are still available, so sign up ASAP! See Ms. Kasler for more details.”

Time for our first school wide competition! On the poster near the entrance to the commons there are 10 pictures that were taken around the school, but there’s a catch. The pictures have been zoomed in so it is tough to figure out what they are. Guess what all of the pictures contain, and you win! To guess, write down on a piece of paper what you think each of them are, and turn it in.

A fun holiday competition has arrived! Guess how many peppermints are in the jar, and win a prize! The jar will be out from December 12th to December 14th.

Holigrams are still available! They will be available before and after school, and during A lunch. Holigrams sell 2 for 1 dollar, and will be sent out after you have written your note and turned them back in. Send a little cheer to a friend this holiday!
