Students: Would you like to wear a hat this Friday? Would you like the chance to hit some of your teachers with dodge balls on Friday, December 20th? If you answered yes to either of those questions, then please join the student council in raising money for a deserving borrower from KIVA. We would like to raise money to give a microcredit loan to a deserving borrower to help pull them out of poverty and we need your help! If we raise enough money, then we will celebrate with a staff vs. student dodge ball game next Friday! If you would like to participate, bring an extra dollar to your lunch period! Give the collecting members of student council a dollar and they will give you a ticket that will allow you to wear a hat this Friday! If you have any questions, see Ms. Bigelow.

Other scores were Jake Alt with 4, and John Meek, Gio Weeks, Jared Coates, and Blake Remmelts with a bucket apiece. It was a solid performance by all on the team. They did a great job playing solid TEAM defense. The game tonight is at home versus Wyoming Lee. Please be dressed and ready at 3:30.
The 8th grade basketball team lost to Godwin last night 28 - 14. The team has obviously improved from the first time they played Godwin and this progress is very exciting! In a post-game interview Mitch "Conversion" VanOeffelen said, "Our team played so much better against Godwin this time. We now realize that we aren't far away from being able to give a team like this a run for their money. We can't wait to play again tonight and get back into the win column."
