Yearbook pictures for choir, band, and orchestra will be taken during all of the music periods today.  Students in both choir and an instrumental group should report to choir first.  Thank you in advance for getting to class quickly today so we can get all of our pictures done in a timely fashion.



What makes a hero?  How can we be heroes in everyday life?

Welles Crowther, 24 years old, was working on the 104th floor of the World Trade Center South Tower on 9-11. Welles always carried a red bandana in his pants pocket. Because of this, he became known as “The Man in the Red Bandana,” who saved many lives on September 11th. Welles was an everyday hero. He made a choice that day to help others.  We, too, can make choices each day to treat others well, help when we can, and make a difference.  Stop by the library November 26th though December 21st to help spread the Red Bandana message throughout our middle school campus.



Alliance Club is meeting today after school in the Reading Lounge until 4:25.


Keep bringing in Pop Top Tabs for Ronald McDonald House Charities. Place your Pop Top Tabs in the boxes in the cafeteria or bring them to Ms. Beyer in 6Blue. Our donations will help Ronald McDonald House, a home away from home for families of children receiving treatment from a nearby hospital. 



From the Sports Desk:

Kaneland held a 10-point lead in the 3rd quarter but the Vikings got mad, like if someone had put your stapler in Jello and made a furious comeback.  Nick Pappas and Tyler Quisling played lockdown defense, like the balor in the warehouse.  Unfortunately, some late calls didn’t go our way and the Vikings lost. 

Like Jim and Dwight sealing another sale, the 8th grade B team sealed another victory in dominating fashion against Kaneland.  Matthew Mikec hit a big 3 burger and Peter Lemke was a beast on the offensive and defensive side of the court.
