  • Music in Our Schools: April is Music in our Schools month and the Morning News is inviting you and your friends to show off your musical talents during the Morning News! To participate, sign-up on the sheet posted on the Media Center door. Performances may be solo or up to 6 students. Please let Mrs. Sieve know if you need special accommodations in the studio. Remember, the Morning News is video streamed from the Middle School website, so this opportunity just might be your ticket to stardom!
  • Trash for Cash: Do you want a Dairy Queen sundae or blizzard? Bring in your Trash for Cash items beginning April 2. Your name will be entered into a random drawing to win a Dairy Queen item, to be delivered to your study hall April 16 or 17. There will be two winners per grade. Put all of your Trash for Cash items in a zip lock bag, along with your name written on a piece of paper. Drop your Trash for Cash items in the labeled paper bag in your Period 1 classroom. You may bring in as many Trash for Cash items as you like, but your name will be entered in the drawing only once. All money raised goes to NMS!
  • Flat Stanley Fans: Did you take some awesome shots of Flat Stanley hanging out over Spring Break? If so, please submit those photos and videos to Mrs. Sieve or Mrs. Turnacliff as soon as possible. It is not too late to take some photos! Pick up a Flat Stanley in the Media Center and take him on an adventure. Thanks so much for helping with this project.
