Daily Announcements-Tuesday

November 16, 2009

Good morning! Today is Tuesday, November 17th, and it is a B Day for everyone!

Orders from the fall fundraiser will be delivered today. Orders will be given to students during the course of the afternoon, or parents may come to school to pick up their order. Orders will be available for pick up from 1:30-2:15 p.m. in the gym.

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 will begin Thursday, November 19th. 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.

Unfortunately Coach Pointer is very ill forcing us to CANCEL the first open gym for 7th and 8th grade girls’ volleyball. Let us know at lunch if we need to call a parent to let them know there has been a change in plans.

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.
