Remember…Stuff the Bus is a service project sponsored by your Student Council to benefit the local food pantry.  The homebase with the most cans/items and the winning team from each grade level will be rewarded for their contributions.  So, bring in those non-perishable items!  Collection has been extended through December 5.

The JH dance is TONIGHT (6:30-9:00pm).  ALL grades are invited to attend!  Tickets will be on sale for $5, today at lunch only!  You must buy your ticket in advance, no tickets will be sold at the door. 

7/8 grade Choir will both meet TODAY.

Just a reminder…there will be NO CHESS next week!

All students should have taken the Truth Talks pre-test.  If you have not completed the Truth Talks pre-test, please do so by the end of the day today by using the Truth Talk icon on your iPad.  If you have questions, see…Ms. Ryan, a PE teacher, or a fine/practical arts teacher.

Quote of the Day:   You must not treat others with cruelty and that much harshly, you must fight others but through peace and through dialogue and through education.”  ~Malala Yousafzai

We control our Attitude and Effort, so make both Great!
