Daily Announcements-Wednesday

November 17, 2009

Good morning! Today is Wednesday, November 18th, and it is an A Day for everyone!

Thank you to everyone who helped with the fundraiser and its delivery. We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. Every single box was picked up from the cafeteria!

Student fees were mailed out earlier this month. Please remember that these fees are due on or before November 30th.

Yearbooks are on sale for $25.00. After Christmas Break the price goes up to $30.00. If you would like to order a yearbook please take your money to the main office.

Scholastic Bowl tryouts begin tomorrow. Scholastic Bowl is an academic traveling team that is open to 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. It is a competition very similar to “Team Jeopardy.” Tryouts for this team take place over multiple weeks of Thursday after school sessions from 2:30-4:00. You do not need to sign up, just show up to the library the first night of tryouts.

Chess Club begins right after Thanksgiving Break on Monday, November 30th. This is open to all interested 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. You do not need to know how to play before you attend. You meet every Monday in the cafeteria from 2:30-4:00.

There has been a change in the start time for the girls’ 7th/8th grade basketball game tonight. The start time for the 7th grade game is now 5:30, which means there is not a bus. Please be to Ball Charter by 5:00. Immediately following the 7th grade game, we will have the 8th grade girls’ recognition night. We would like eighth grade girls to please be dressed in uniform with your parents around 6:00.

Due to the change in start time for the girls’ basketball game, the boys’ 8th grade basketball practice has been cancelled for tonight.
