Today is an A Day
MAP word of the day – Quote
The character word for the month of March: Patience- “being able to accept and
tolerate delay or troubles.”-Caroline-8Green
Thought Of The Day-: “For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the
price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice - no paper currency, no promises to
pay, but the gold of real service.” John Burroughs

Key Club & Interact at LHS and Interact and Trend groups at both middle schools are
sponsoring a shoe collection drive. The Shoeman Water Project collects shoes to raise
money to build wells. You can check out more about it at www.shoemanwater.org)
How does it work? 1. Shoes in good condition are sold at an inexpensive cost. This
raises money to build wells. It also gives a person a way to earn money by running the
shoe store. 2. Shoes that aren't reusable are recycled! If you have any shoes you were
planning on getting rid of, please consider bringing them on or before 3/7. Shoe boxes
located throughout the building.

Explanation of Friday’s Movie Day
So the greatest challenge is pulling this off, but here is what we have to date. All students will sign up
during lunch times and select a movie to view that morning. Teachers supervising the movie rooms will
have a list of students in their mailbox by the end of school on Thursday 3/13. Movie rooms can/will have
a mix of students from all grade levels. Due to worries about copyright issues, students will donate money
for the opportunity to attend. Teams are encouraged to set standards for those who cannot attend (i.e. if
your team has a quarter incentive of all homework turned in, or no F’s, those students could remain on
team in a study hall to make up missing work or improve on assessments). We will have the following
1. Despicable Me 2- the library- Amy Sears
2. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2- Little Theater- Scheidy
3. Monsters University4. Finding Nemo5. Tangled6. Wreck it Ralph7. Madagascar 38. Toy Story
9. Sleeping Beauty10. The Lorax-6 Gold
We are looking to have teams select one of the open movies above and host in your team area. We
advise using your science rooms as they are typically the largest rooms. We are capping our audience in
the library and little theater at 100. All others will be capped at 40. Off team and elective teachers will be
encouraged to monitor and supervise hallways and perhaps assist with our concession stand that will be
set up in the front commons. The fantastic Amy Sears is working on providing us with some DVD players
that we can set up in your teams.
