Thursday Announcements

February 7, 2008

Today is Thursday, February 7, and it is an A day!

I apologize for not updating announcements on Wednesday. I was at a meeting where I could not access e-mail.

The Lincoln Land DARE board is putting together an event for Springfield DARE Officer Mark Houston, DARE students, their families and friends for from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Feb. 18 at King Pin Lanes. Officer Houston will be teaching DARE at LMS starting in April. February 18 is a scheduled school holiday, to this is a chance to bowl, enjoy free snacks and win door prizes.

Cost is estimated to be $13 each, which includes two games and shoe rentals, free chips and soda. Proceeds will help pay for classroom materials. Kids will be encouraged to wear their DARE T-shirts, and get a $1 discount by either wearing it or bringing a friend. A certificate will go to the school with the most bowlers!

All students need to return their registration sheets for next year in order to get the classes they want.

Our Friendship Dance will be this Friday, Feb. 8, from 6:30-8:00. We are accepting donations of liter bottles of soda for the dance. Parent help is appreciated! Please let the office know if you can help! (525-3236)
