    And now for the March Book Madness update.  The Elite 8 have been narrowed down to the final four, and your regional champions are:


    In the Humor Region:  Diary of a Wimpy Kid

    In the Survival Region:  Hatchet

    In the Ghost/Supernatural Region:  Ghost Boys

    And in the Animal Tales Region:  The One and Only Ivan


    Now it’s up to all of you to go to the Google form on the webpage by the end of the day tomorrow to determine the winners.  Will Brian’s personal struggles in nature win out over Greg Heffley’s trials in middle school? Are the stories of murdered boys stronger than the story of an gorilla who can draw? That’s up to all of you to decide.

    There will be set painting in the wood gym Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week from 3-5pm.


    Tech crew rehearsals this week are from 3-5:15pm if you’re stage manager, set movers and prop people we’d like you here all week.   The rest of the crew will be notified via Canvas.  If you can’t make a rehearsal this week then let Mrs. Hernandez know via Canvas or email.  After spring break all set movers, lights, sound, and prop crew will be expected at rehearsals Monday through Friday from 3-5:15pm.


    Attention Science Olympiad Participants: If you did not stop by on Friday to receive a permission slip for the pizza party which is this Thursday, please see Miss Consorti or Miss Kandl by the end of the day today.  Also, if you have your permission slip, don’t forget to turn it in!


    It’s half time in the Elite 8 of March Book Madness, and all the matches are still up for grabs.  It’s neck and neck in Humor between Smile and Diary of a Wimpy Kid as well as between Illegal and Hatchet in Survival, so every vote definitely counts in both those regions.  The upstarts have the upper hand in the Ghost and Animal Tales regions, but Christmas Carol and Charlotte’s Web still have time to rally.  If you haven’t voted yet, be sure to weigh in before 2:30 pm today.  It’s up to YOU to select the ultimate Final Four!



    Attention all those in dance club or interested in joining:  We will begin our Spring session after Spring Break! Come join us for a brief informational meeting this Thursday afterschool in room 108 for more information. If you have already come to practices, you don’t need to attend this meeting. We will start practices again after Spring Break. Please listen to announcements for when!  (This means we will not meet this week; we will meet up again after Spring Break, thank you!)
