Monday, November 19, 2018


Anyone in FCA needs to meet in 14E after the morning announcements.


There will be no after school Math tutoring this week Tuesday.


The Future Business Leaders of America will be recruiting members from November 15 through November 21. Anyone who would like to join would have to pay $15 and get an application form from either Mrs. Ringwald or Ms. Keck.


The Student Council and FBLA are pairing together with our local BCMW to collect Coats, Hats, Gloves and Scarves for the winter season!  The Coat Drive will occur at CHS starting today and running until Monday December 17th.  BCMW has expressed a need for new and or gently used coats, hats, gloves, and scarves.  There is a larger need for children's coats, however no donation will be turned away.


Student Council and FBLA would like to make this coat drive a classroom competition.  The 1st hour classroom that collects the most donated items by December 17th will win a delicious breakfast catered to their classroom on Wednesday, December 19th. Please turn in all donated items to your 1st hour teacher and a StuCo member or FBLA member will collect and total them during channel one.  The winning class will be announced on Tuesday Dec 18th.




All students are required to wear their school issued ID and lanyard between the hours of 8:03AM and 2:50PM.  Students must also have an ID placed in the clear plastic cover on their Chromebook.  


It's that time of year again!  We will be collecting new toys and canned goods for BCMW.  There will be cans in the front of school by the office.  BCMW is a non-profit community service organization that assists low income families in Clinton County.  They are looking forward to our support. Thank you.


All Pit Crew members are encouraged to join the Pit Crew's Google Classroom.  This classroom will be used to update the group with news, events, and other student section information.  In order to join, use the classroom code: wabalj2        If you have any questions, please see Simon Thomas, Bryce Jansen, Jordyn Rakers or Annie Wieter.
