For a Santa Project total of $4,533.13. We are in the home stretch of Santa Project with nearly $2,500 to reach our goal, only today and tomorrow left for collections remaining. Please remember that Santa Project is all about spreading kindness and helping those that are less fortunate during the holiday season. Please continue to dig deep into your pockets to help us reach our goal in the next few days.

- Which teacher do YOU think ought to have to eat a disgusting candy cane? Mr. McGerty with a gravy-flavored one? Mr. Clark with pickle-flavored? Ms. Stevenson with toothpaste-flavored? You can help pick by putting money into the bucket belonging to your favorite teacher. The teacher who gets the most money in his or her bucket has to eat the nastiest candy cane! Buckets are in the library, and you can put money in them today and Friday. So far, Mr. Lewis is in the lead!!! All money donated goes toward Santa Project!
- The girls A team won last night against Lewis and Clark 48 to 26. The team had their best complete game this season and every single player contributed to the win. The win put the lady Chargers in 4th place which means that they have one more home game on Monday against Lewis and Clark. Come out and support this team on Monday and cheer them on to a win in the first round of the playoffs. Because Monday is the first round of the playoff tournament there will be a cost to get into the game. Students who attend and have an activity card will be required to pay 1.00 dollar at the door. Students who don't have an activity card will be required to pay 2.00 dollars at the door. Come out on Monday and cheer the team on to a victory. If the lady Chargers win on Monday they will be traveling to Victory on Tuesday for their 2nd round game. Great job to all of the girls on their effort this season and good luck in the post season tournament!
