Tuesday, Pickle Ball

PE students are learning how to play Pickle Ball today.

It's a great game for PE classes.  You don't have to be super athletic to play, and it's really fun.

Personal Fitness has a workout day.

Classes are still on, as the storm has held back a little, but it still looks like it could get nasty this afternoon/evening.

Early Dismissal this friday due to staff development.

Wednesday - Post Valentines Blues

Hope everyone had a great Valentine's day. 

Congrats to the Lady Cubs BB team as they decimated the Stanley County Lady Buffs last night.

Good Win Ladies!  Way to build momentum heading into districts next week.

Today in Health class, we will be having an "ICU Day" to help students complete work and get of "The List".  2 Health classes will have a quiz today first.

Today in Personal Fitness class - students will be writing their Personal Workout Plan that they will be expected to follow for the rest of the Semester.  I have told them that I will be picky about their plan, it's an important step in them being able to develop a comprehensive plan for fitness.

Tomorrow in school from 1 pm to 2 pm, students will have an ICU Day.  Students who are not on "The List" will get to see a concert from the US Army Rock Band.  Should be a very cool show for our students to participate in.

Early dismissal tomorrow at 2 pm.

Parent Teacher Conferences tomorrow 2:30 to 8:30 pm.  Parents, make sure to come and register your student for the drawing.

No School Friday.

Monday, Feb. 13th

Lesson Plans for this week are up and on the internet.

First day back in school for me in what feels like forever.  I was home with sick children last Wednesday and Thursday, and had an appointment on Friday that I had made weeks ago.  So it's been almost a week!

Lucky for me, I had all my grades up to date so all I have to do is play catch-up... but still, 3 days is alot of work to catch up on. 

Let's see... News and Notes.
1.  Parent Teacher Conferences - Conferences will be held this Thursday, February 16th from 2:30 to 8:30 pm.
2.  No School Friday - Friday will be a no school day, after conferences.
3.  No School Monday - President's Day
4.  Conferences Drawing - I'm not real certain about this myself... I'm not one of the planners, but I know that each MS teacher was given some money from the PTA to use to buy a gift.  Each student whose parent/guardian attends conferences gets their student's name put in a drawing, and then that teacher will draw who wins the prizes from their "pool".

Good Luck to the Cubs JH Basketball team as they play at St. Joes tonight.

Caught a pretty good portion of the Grammy Awards last night.  I really enjoyed the show for the most part.  Some pretty good performances from Bruno Mars, Foo Fighters, Taylor Swift (yes, Taylor Swift!  She was awesome... I can't believe I'm saying that), Adele, and Jennifer Hudson did a great tribute to Whitney Houston.  That was really a fun show to watch.

Good Morning Everyone, hope you had a safe and happy Super Bowl Sunday.

Congratulations to the New York Giants for winning another classic Super Bowl last night.  I was cheering for the Giants, but only because I can't bring myself to cheer for the Patriots.
