Good morning, Falcons! Happy birthday to the amazing Mrs. B!
Huge congratulations to all the performers who competed in last night’s Falcons Got Talent show. Special kudos to our winners:
In 3rd place was Valentine Kenney, who sang and played the bass guitar!
In 2nd place was Sophia Bertram, who sang “Jar of Hearts.”
And our first place winner, who stunned with her incredible vocals and performance, was Diana Vega! Congratulations to everyone involved!
Formal tickets will be going on sale on Monday, December 12! Stay tuned for the reveal of our theme and location!
Don’t forget - we start Dime Wars and Adopt a Star on Monday!
Here are the details for Dime Wars:
During your 2nd period class, you will collect funds that will go towards purchasing items for the children at Memorial Hospital through the Ronald McDonald House.
The class with the most positive points gets to choose between a donut or pizza party. So, you are competing against other 2nd-period classes.
All dimes put into the containers are worth 10 positive points. Any other currency [pennies(-1), nickels(-5), quarters(-25), dollars(-100 per denomination)] are worth negative points. So, in order to stop the other 2nd-period classes from winning, you need to sabotage those classes by putting money other than dimes in their containers. Please keep track of your totals each day!
Please be considerate of class time and sabotage before school, during lunch, or after school (but only if the teacher is in the room). You can also sabotage during passing period if the teacher is present…but students cannot be late to class.
Finally, you can actually win as a “loser!” The class with the most negative points wins a donut party!!!
Adopt a Star is also starting on Monday! If you’d like to help a local child have a happy holiday, please select a star from the tree in the front office. There will be information about the child, including age and interests, so you can find something they’d enjoy! Please remember: these must be new, unwrapped presents.
Attention! If you’re interested in playing boys’ golf this year, there will be a meeting in Coach Olejnik's room (P1) today at lunch.
Have a great weekend, Falcons!!
