Daily Announcements  
March 27, 2017
Photography Club would be happy to have you!  Be a part of our photo family and join us!  We meet  in room 807 every other Tuesday.  Our first meeting is Tuesday, March 28.  See you there! 

RISE meets this Friday in Mrs. Rood’s room from 3:10 to 4:00.  We will finish our poetry mix up and talk about our spirit day!

If you're interested in finding out more about peak flows, vital capacity, and lungs, come to our next Science Club.  We'll have Kati Daniels, a Respiratory Therapist, here to speak with us.  Please sign up outside Ms. Wesley's room before April 6.  There is space available for 20 interested scientists.  We have a 5 space back up list if other students are not able to attend.


This year’s  ‘Give Ike a Bone’ Bulldog Service Challenge is on!   The grade level that fills their portion of the IKE on the wall outside the Gym by April 15th will win a privilege for their grade level, and the advisory with the most service credit hours at each grade level will win a McDonalds breakfast!  Advisory teachers, if you haven’t already, please give each of your advisory students a Bulldog Service Challenge Community Service Documentation 2017 form to document their community service volunteer hours, and encourage them to volunteer.  Each hour of volunteer service earns Ike a Bone! 


8th graders please listen up!  The SW School Garden is looking for some of you to work in the school garden this summer.  We will be hiring three or four  SW “Student Gardeners” to work regularly in, and help promote the SW School Garden, this growing season.  Applications for these paid positions are now available in the front office, or Mr. Kennard’s room 704.  One of the application requirements is to volunteer at least 2 hours in the School Garden. Weekly workdays are tentatively scheduled for Saturdays in March.  Please check with Mr. Kennard for more details.
