Junior High Students, Let's Play Scrabble!  
Be the first 3 students for each teacher to unscramble the 2, seven letter words worn by the junior high teachers.  Each teacher will only have 3 prizes to reward for the correct answer.  
Hints: Our front letters make the 1st word and the back letters make the 2nd word. 
Also, Ms. Clayton & Mrs. Kirby have the same letters and act as one teacher.  

Thank you to our STUDENT COUNCIL for sponsoring Spirit Week.  Lots of fun has been had by all!!!

STUDENTS - We are glad that you want to come out and support our basketball teams.  However, do not exit the building upon entering until it is time for you to leave.  Also, please remain in the gymnasium during play time.

The office will call for classes when it is time to go watch the Cinderella production.
