On Today’s Birthday Calendar: SATURDAY the 13th is lucky for sure, especially if you are SETH SALYERS. SETH turns fourteen with a day to sleep in, but don’t sleep in to long, let the birthday fun begin. ON MONDAY, no school, honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A great man of words, vision and humor. His life was cut short, but he legacy lives on. Peacefully, we can bring change, but persistence must be strong. TWO JR. POTTERS share birthdays with Dr. King. We hope that they laugh, dance and sing. TERRY COWLEY and MRS. TRILIKAS. It’s your birthday, too. We hope that practically, perfect days happen to you. HAPPY MLK BIRTHDAYS to TERRY and MRS. TRILIKAS.

THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW: 

 

DODGEBALL FORMS IN THE OFFICE! Get you team together and make plans to be apart of this Gameball Run Fundraiser.

 

Every life has some hits. We don’t get to choose. When sickness happens, our community is fortunate to have the excellent care team at the Children’s Hospital of Illinois. Come duck, dive and dodge balls to raise money for the “Gameball Run” campaign. DODGEBALL FORMS IN THE OFFICE! Get you team together and make plans to be a part of this exciting fundraiser.

 

 

THE VIEW FROM THE LMC: On this day in 2010, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake devastates the Caribbean island nation of Haiti. The quake, which was the strongest to strike the region in more than 200 years, left over 200,000 people dead and some 895,000 Haitians homeless. The poor little island took another hit from Hurricane Matthew in 2016. They continue to recover slowly.   MJHS STUDENTS who had LMC books over break… you need to return or renew or an LMC. Fines begin accruing today. BOOKS RETURNED or RENEWED today, the fine will be waived.  Return on Tuesday and the fine will be .20.

 

 

If you are a student with an iPad... this announcement is for you. Your iPad is a learning AND communication device. Checking your email is a student responsibility. Not optional but an expectation.  PLEASE add an alarm to your iPad if you need one, but you need to check your email at the beginning and end of every school day - and more often, if possible.

 

 

FORGOTTEN ITEMS:  CHECK THE OFFICE SHELF. Instruments, PE CLOTHES, folders, and so much more. You may email your parent for forgotten items, but it is student responsibility to come and retrieve whatever has been brought in by a parent.  If your parent brings you a forgotten item, they can email you at [email protected]  Then come check the shelf, please.

 

 

LOST AND FOUND - is outside of the cafeteria doors across from the bathrooms. Look for your items. They are donated several times a year when the shelf is full. THAT SHELF IS NOT a place to put binders and iPads while you eat lunch. Binders and iPads MUST be in lockers during lunch.

 

Items in the LOST AND FOUND will soon disappear. They will be donated to the MISSION MART. Thursday after school is your last chance.

 

 

FROM MR. HOFFMAN: If you are a bus rider, you must not leave school grounds before school or after school. No trips to the gas station or Jimmy John’s, even if you have a late bus.
