Here’s a riddle for you: Why couldn’t the pony sing “Happy Birthday?” Answer: It was feeling a little horse!

Ready, Set, Search! It’s time for the Library Halloween Scavenger Hunt! Sleuth through the library shelves for books with Cats, Bats or even Rats on the cover. Bring what you find to the main desk and collect a Halloween prize! As always, your librarians love a convincing argument as to why your discovery qualifies. Stretch your minds, exercise your fingers, here we go! 


Students who believe the environment is the greatest resource we have for a healthy future: Take Action! Consider being part of the Youth Environmental Summit on Friday, October 28.  To learn about the Youth Environmental Summit, pick up a flyer from a science teacher. Space is limited so you must act this week. To learn about going to the Summit, be in Streeter 241 Thursday after CP. Find out more today: the future is tomorrow! Contact Mr. Eckel with questions.


Science Olympiad will meet Wednesday and Friday this week after CP.


When it comes to the global economy, even our student body can make an impact. When supply of a product is in abundance, more often than not demand for the product and the price of the product will significantly drop. This leads the producer of the product to suffer financially. Despite supply chain and climate issues, cardboard farmers have produced banner harvests of cardboard over the last decade leading to huge supplies and cardboard piling up in silos. Do your part to help this struggling cardboard by saving up your cardboard and bringing it in next week for the Spirit Week Bonfire. More details will come about where to bring it, but every piece we burn shows school spirit and a commitment to help raise the demand for product of our nation’s cardboard farmers.


Happy Birthday today to Julian Lumbra, Makenna Emmons, Tristan Plante, and Taishiro Yamaoka!  Happy Belated Birthday to Peyton Speer on Sunday from the Begin Giddings Advisory!
