Daily Announcements-Thursday

November 12, 2009

Good morning! Today is Thursday, November 12th, and it is an A Day for everyone!

After School Instruction begins next week. This is the perfect opportunity to get the extra help you might need in order to be successful. Permission slips do need to be turned in to Mr. Crum as soon as possible.

Scholastic Book Orders may be picked up in Language Arts Classrooms or the Library. This would be a good opportunity to start your holiday shopping! You can enter your order online or turn it in to Mrs. Vanderwater. They are due tomorrow.

The Scholastic Bowl is open to 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. Scholastic Bowl is a competition very similar to "Team Jeopardy." 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. Talented students participate in a quiz competition including questions of math, science, history, literature, sports, geography, economics and current events. A flyer will be placed on the activity table this week. For more information see Mrs. Vanderwater or Mr. Snow. The tryouts do start next week on Thursday, November 19th.

Volleyball open gym and tryout information is on the activity table for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. Please be sure to get the half sheet of paper that pertains to your grade level. Coach Pointer will be here November 23rd to speak with interested 7th and 8th graders. Sixth grade students should direct their questions to Mrs. Erickson.

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.
