We will have an assembly today at 2:30 for the ice bucket challenge.


To celebrate LEAP YEAR, there will be a jar of M&M's on a table in the lobby during lunch today and on Monday. Pay just 29 cents to guess how many are in the jar. The winner will be announced at the end of the lunch period on Monday and the jar will be theirs to take home.


There will be a mandatory meeting for all seniors going on the senior trip, on Tuesday, March 1, in the morning before school. The meeting will be held in Mrs. Vogel's room and start at 7:45 a.m.  


In honor of the leap year, this Monday, during lunch, we are playing leap the river. The winners from each class will compete against each other. The overall winner will get a ticket worth $1.50 at the concession stand.


Leap, leap! Ribbet, ribbet! Leap your way into March! Student council will have twenty-nine 29s hidden in classrooms on Monday.  If you find a 29, leap your way to the concession stand during lunch to claim your prize!  J Happy Leap Year!!!!!
