Don’t forget to bring in change for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Help us raise money for kids with cancer. If we raise $750 as a school, advisory with the most money raised gets an Olive Garden lunch. This is from April 9th- April 27th.  We also will have jeans/joggers/sweatpants day each Friday of April for $1.  If you want to add a hoodlie with that it will be an extra dollar for a total of $2.  Orange shirts are also in support of the leukemia and lymphoma society.

We also need pennies for the Lincoln Document to come home to Illinois!  The Pride of the Generals club will be collecting them in the lobby.  The grade level with the most will have an extra recess.

Students don’t forget to sign up for Poetry Night is tomorrow night Thursday the 19th 6-7:30. This is an awesome night to show off your rap, song or poem. It’s an open mic night, right on the table kind of night! Be sure to sign up you and how many from the family that will be coming. If you did not receive flyer see Ms. Piphus.

Starting this week through the end of the school year the PBIS team will be raffling off posters to students.  The raffle will work the same way as the PBIS quarter baskets.  Each week we will put 2 posters in the glass window behind the tardy table.  Each poster will have a box in front of it for the students to turn in purple positives, Baugher Buck, and/or Hallway good notes for a chance to win the poster.  Students can turn in as many as they want to each box, to increase their odds of winning.  The winner will be announced on Friday before the end of the day.  Also, on Friday the entries in the boxes will be dumped so we can start over the following Monday with new posters.  This weeks posters are  MLB and a puppies poster. 

Get your yearbooks before they are gone! Those that preorder their yearbooks will get theirs first. We only have 35 hardcover for $25 each and 85 softcover for $20 each left!
