Coach Roberts thanked everyone for coming out and encouraged those who didn't make the cut to keep practicing and to try out the next year. 

Who can solve the first Math Muncher for August

Attributions: 

School has begun and so the math department has issued its first challenge to our students. The first three Math Muncher problems have been posted. For those who are new to our school, every month the math department posts three math problems on their bulletin board. Each problem is worth tickets to enter a drawing to win a gift card courtesy the math department.

Students who answer these problems correctly can pass them off with their math teacher and recieve tickets. They will then write their name on the ticket and take it to Mrs. Johnson's class to enter the drawing. They always pick a winner from each grade level. The first question is worth one ticket, the second is worth two, and the third, of course, is worth three tickets. If students answer all three correctly they can get six tickets entered into the drawing.

Here is the first math muncher. Can you solve it?

In 9th grade English students made "clickbait headlines" to describe an event from their summer. The point is to get people interested in the story by creating an exaggerated headline. Tomorrow students will interview each other and get the real story.

Change in 7th Grade Day

Attributions: 

With the feedback we have received about the eclipse starting when our Seventh Grade Day is ending, we have decided to move up Seventh Grade Day to 8:30 a.m. and end at 10:45 a.m. Buses in the  morning will now only be 30 minutes later than the normal school day and will leave the school by 11:00 a.m. We hope this helps alleviate the conflict between the two events.

Annaliese Eddington, 9th grade, took 2nd place and Olivia Christiansen, 8th grade, took 3rd in our district's annual poetry slam last night at Salem High School. The night's poems were divided into two categories: Original and Recetation. Annaliese and Olivia were in the Original category. Annaliese wrote and performed a poem called "Someday" and Olivia wrote and performed "My Journal."

Another student, Marian Smith recieved an honorable mention for her recitation of a poem called "Slow Dance" which she signed as she recited the poem.

All in all, it was another great year and our students did a great job representing themselves and our school in front of the district.
