    New Announcements:

    1. ASB – We are ready to get our ASB started up this year!  Over the next few weeks our MS students will be provided information regarding the open positions and how to apply.  Our goal is to announce our ASB officers prior to Winter Break.  If you aren’t familiar with the role of our ASB (Associated Student Body), they are leaders in the middle school who set up fun activities and ways for all students to get involved.  We will be sending out more information soon.

    2. Year of Purpose – December’s principle is Globalism and Collective Value.  December 3 is International People’s with Disabilities Day. Harriet Tubman, Fannie Lou Hamer are two disabled freedom fighters we revere, even as the disabilities they carried with them into struggle aren’t consistently lifted up as assets in their fight. To fight against societal ableism, we must celebrate our differences and understand how the lessons from Black disabled organizers teach us how to build inclusive, accessible movements.
    3. Congratulations, Readers, you have completed the Read-A-Thon! Now it's time to add up your minutes read, collect your pledges and turn in your forms! Forms and pledges can be turned in and participation bookmarks will be distributed at the school on December 2 and 3 from 2:30pm-4:30pm at library pickup.

While keeping cultural diversity in mind this winter season, we are focusing our Drive on household supplies instead of food. Each grade is assigned one type of item. You can buy that item from the Target wishlist or you can buy it elsewhere locally. Target Wish List:
    K – laundry detergent
    1st grade – paper towels (if not available, soap bars like Dove)
    2nd grade – toilet paper (if not available, baby wipes)
    3rd grade – dish soap
    4th grade – deodorant
    5th grade – shampoo
    6th grade – conditioner
    7th grade – toothbrushes
    8th grade – Nutella

    We will keep track of donations based on a point system with items costing about $5 equal to one point. We’ll do our best to keep track fairly. The winning grade will win a virtual DANCE PARTY with Principal Debbie Nelsen! We announce the winning grade after the break to allow time for all shipments to be delivered.
    You can have items shipped to Tracy Buckingham/Family Support Lead (Target registry automatically ships to) or drop off at her house. Please email Tracy for address/drop off info and any questions: Thank you all for supporting those in our HW community who have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
