Money crunch
Students will have the opportunity to help raise money for school projects.  Monday they meet with a sales representative who explains the merchandise and procedures students need to follow. In addition to helping with funds for various activities, students can earn prizes based on the number of items they sell.
 
Movie set
The old junior high gym will be used in the movie Believe in Me. Dianne Parker from central office sent a memo about the need for extras in the stands for the ball game scenes. Parents and students need to call the Chamber of Commerce to sign up. People need to dress in the 50s style. Students may look at some old junior high yearbooks to see just what those styles include.
