All members of the Wrestling Team who have not turned in their wrestling gear, please turn it in to Mrs. Knafelc before you leave for Winter Break.

We have an amazing school!!  Currently 8th grade is ahead in the donation’s for OPERATION SANTA with 6th in second place.  We have currently raised over $239.75 in our fundraiser.  It is not too late to participate in the huge PJ Bottom’s or Hat party we are having on Thursday.  If you would like to support the fundraiser just drop by our donation station in the cafeteria before school, make a minimum donation and we will give you a sticker.  Remember if you pay on Thursday the minimum donation is $3.00, then you will get a sticker to wear on Thursday that will allow you to be in PJ bottoms or a Hat on Thursday.  Thank you to all the very generous students that have contributed money for this cause. 

This year we are having a sucker sale!!! It ends today. The flavors that we have this year are Raspberry Lemon, Mountain Berry, Green Apple, Black Cherry, Tangerine, Strawberries and Cream, Watermelon, and Strawberry Kiwi. We even have sour flavors this year including Green Apple and Strawberry Kiwi!!! They also come in a cool shape like lips. If you want buy some suckers they will be available during lunch and after school.  Don’t forget, the suckers are going fast so you better hurry!!!
