Announcements for 11/2

November 2, 2012

Good morning, today is Friday, November 2, and it is a B day.

First quarter honor roll breakfast will be held this morning beginning at 8:20. Students may check their report cards for their honor roll listings or check outside the cafeteria this week for their names.

8th Grade Girls Basketball Recognition Night will be held on November 6, which is our last home game of the season. Please come out to celebrate our 8th grade girls.

Students in the 6th, 7th and 8th grade may try out for the LMS Scholastic Bowl Team. Scholastic Bowl is a team competition very similar to "Team Jeopardy." Teams participate in a quiz competition including questions in the categories of Math, Science, History, Literature, Sports, Geography, Economics and Current Events. Students who are interested in participating should have a quick recall of facts as well as a strong academic background in a variety of subject areas.
Tryouts for this team take place over two weeks of Thursday after school sessions 2:30 – 4:00. Students must provide written parent permission to participate in order to be considered for the team. This form is available on the table outside of Mr. Hampsey's office.
The following are taken into consideration when choosing the team members:
Written Test, Buzzer response Test, Attendance at Tryout Sessions, Teamwork, Behavior, School Attendance, Grades (eligibility) and teacher recommendation based on classroom performance (behavior and participation).
Students that were previously on the LMS Scholastic Bowl Team will NOT automatically be part of this year’s team! ALL students MUST try out!!!!

Both of the 2012 – 2013 Tryout Sessions are Required:
Thursday, November 1st 2:30 – 4:00
Thursday, November 8th 2:30 – 4:00

The 2012 team will be announced before the beginning of Thanksgiving Break.
