Great Morning Leopards! Today is Tuesday, December 8th. It's going to be a great day of learning!

Happy Birthday Shout Out to ..... Imani J. Enjoy your day!

Welcoming Ritual: Today is National Pretend to be Time Traveler Day! If you could travel back or forward in time, where would you go and why?

Scholastic Bowl Meeting: There is a mandatory Scholastic Bowl parent/scholar meeting for all of those interested in being a part of the scholastic bowl team this year. Meeting will take place via zoom on Tuesday, Dec. 8th @6pm. Zoom link will be emailed to those students who previously signed up, but if you would like to attend please email Mrs. Lott or call the school.

High School 101: Each year, administration at Lanphier, Springfield, and Southeast High Schools visit our 8th graders and their families to communicate important information about high school. This year, the presentations have been converted into videos for you to watch at your convenience. The link is posted on our main page on the right. The first video is particularly informative about required courses, elective courses, and credits. If you have any questions email Mrs. Sevener or your respective high school.

Sports Update: Due to new mandates and regulations by the Governor, we will not have open gym or contact days in December. Our fingers are crossed that we will still get to have Boys Basketball and Girls Volleyball start in January. Please remember that you must have an up-to-date physical to be on the team so if you have time, get it now, just in case ;)

National Calendar Day: Today is "National Brownie Day". Each year on December 8th, brownie lovers across the nation enjoy one of their favorite baked goods on National Brownie Day. In the United States, the chocolate brownie is a favorite, with the blonde brownie running a close second. A blonde brownie is made with brown sugar and no chocolate and is often called a blondie. The earliest recipes for brownies we are familiar with today are found published in regional cookbooks and newspapers around the turn of the last century.

"Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day": Time travel has captured our imaginations for generations. Science and authors keep coming back to the topic again and again, so it should be no surprise there would be a day to pretend to be a time traveler.
