Friday Announcements

November 9, 2007

Today is Friday, November 9, and it is an A day.

This Sunday, November 11th, is Veteran's Day. I shared the following background with students this morning:
In 1954, President Eisenhower signed the bill proclaiming November 11 as Veterans' Day. It is a day to remember all of the men and women who have served our country in the armed services. We hope they will be in your thoughts as we celebrate the holiday. If you have the opportunity, we hope that you will personally thank a veteran for serving our country and protecting our freedom. We collected 3 LARGE boxes of items to send to the Marines in Iraq next week. Thanks to all who sent items!

PE classes will meet in classrooms today. 7th graders should bring their laptops and writing materials. All other grade levels should bring writing materials only.

The play DIARY OF ANNE FRANK will be performed at the Springfield High this weeked. Times are Saturday, Nov. 10th at 8:00p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 11th, at 5:00 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students. A former LMS student, Jacob Seidman, is one of the SHS student directors!

Fundraiser items will be delivered to school on Wednesday, November 20th at about 1:00. If your child has a BIG order, you may want to arrange to pick them up that day. The prizes will be delivered with their items, and we will have the limo lunch and other big prizes on Friday, December 14th.

The holidays are just around the corner. What better way to send a friend, teacher or a loved one a holiday ad? The Leopard Link newspaper is selling holiday ads in the newspaper that will be delivered before winter break. Price for an ad is $4.50 for just a simple message or $5.00 with a holiday image. Ads will be sold during each lunch period starting Wednesday, Nov. 7th and ending Friday, Nov. 30th.

BETA Club is sponsoring some additional events to raise money for United Way. We will have spirit days on Friday, Nov. 9, Friday, Nov. 16, and Wednesday, Nov. 21. We will have a Fun Day activity the last hour of the day on Wednesday, Nov. 21.
