HOSA would like to thank everyone who donated at the blood drive last Wednesday. The drive goal was 39 units.  We exceeded that goal and ended with a total of 47 units.

#16. Treatments depend on the type of cancer, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery and sometimes immunotherapy.  Eli received 22 rounds of chemo, 35 sessions of radiation in which he was sedated each time and his shunt surgery in which prolonged his life for another month and half. The cost of his shunt surgery alone was $37,000.

There will be a LifeSavers meeting at 2:30 today during Advisory in Room 5E (Child Care Room).

All girls planning to play basketball this season will need to attend a brief meeting in the main gymnasium following the completion of the daily announcements.  

The banned book in a jar last week in the media center was Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.  If you guessed correctly, come to the library to receive a prize!

Life can throw us curve balls.  As a result, we all have stressful days and we all have moments where our emotions can get the best of us.  COPE, which stands for Creating Opportunities for Personal Empowerment, is a program that teaches skills for healthy communication, building self-esteem and managing stress and emotion.  If you are interested in learning more about the COPE program or in potentially getting involved in a 7 session COPE workshop, please see or e-mail Mrs. Koerkenmeier ([email protected]org).

Congratulations to Rylee Jansen and Braden Reverman the 2022 Homecoming Queen and King.

If anyone is still interested in a Homecoming T-shirt, there are still a few available, please see Mrs Kujawa.

The Freshman Student Council members will have a group picture on Wednesday 8th hour.
