ANNOUNCEMENTS:

SQUIRE KINDNESS WEEK: Today is the final day of Kindness Week, and it’s been fun!  Love seeing those kinds acts and comments you’re doing for each other!! Let’s keep kind acts and gestures going well beyond today.  When we do kind things for others, they feel so good about what we did that they will go out and do kind acts, too. As kindness is passed on from one person to another, an outward ripple effect is created, like a raindrop that falls into water.  In this way kindness can be passed on, bringing happiness and encouragement over and over.  Morgan Freeman (a famous African American actor) once said, “How do we change the world? One random act of kindness at a time.”  The smallest acts of kindness can change a life.  Keep on making kindness the norm, today and every day.

8th Graders: You will register for High School classes TODAY during 2nd period.  Go to your assigned classroom directly after 1st period. 

Pound Trap Team: You still have time to be part of the Pound Trap Team (NOT TRACK), but this is the last week to register for the 2021 season. Please see the office for more information.

LUNCH CARDS: Students MUST have their lunch card to get a lunch, no exceptions. Be sure you have yours BEFORE going to the cafeteria. Our cafeteria staff members have been nice, and have let some of you give your names to get your lunches. No more. You have to have your card.

SQUIRE KINDNESS WEEK: Hey! All of you out there who wore sports attire today, thank you for showing you’re a good sport when it comes to kindness. We can all appreciate cheering on our favorite team, but did you know that appreciation is a part of being kind? Yes, appreciation is when you are thankful for what someone else has done for you. Do you have a friend that you can always depend on? Has one of your teachers taken the extra time to help you learn something new? How about those cafeteria workers and custodians who go the extra mile to prepare healthy meals and keep your school clean and tidy? Try to find the time today to say thank you to the people who mean the most to you. Remember: a simple thank you can go a long way to showing kindness! Tomorrow’s the last day to dress up for Kindness Week. The theme is… Pink/Red Out—wear anything pink or red, because being kind makes the day brighter!

8th Graders: You will register for High School classes tomorrow, Friday, February 19 during 2nd period. Please see Ms. Halvorsen in the counseling center if you have any questions.
