From the Learning Commons - yesterday we started the contest to encourage borrowers to bring their picture ID cards with them. The winning number yesterday was 5, and Sage, 6-1, James, 6-2, John, 6-2, and Mattea, 6-3. This means each of these students was the fifth student borrowing a book who had their picture ID with them. Today's number is 3 - if you're the third student with picture ID when you sign out your book, you'll be a winner! So the best thing to do is to bring your card with you every time. 

Math Challengers: Next Math Challengers session is Monday, February 5th at 1:15 in Miss Cottier's room in preparation for the contest on February 16th.  Please come prepared with your booklet, a pencil, and a calculator.  New members welcome.

Chill Zone will be meeting every Friday during outdoor activity in room 225. Please see Mrs. Campbell if interested.

Pizza Day – Classes will be called in the following order: Raven hallway, Thunderbird, Wolf and then Orca hallway. Helpers: Division M-4 Mrs. Gill
