FLU SHOT CLINIC
The Chouteau County Health Department will hold a flu shot clinic for students at the school on Thursday, October 8th. Participation is strictly voluntary and not required. This is for your convenience if you would like your student to have a flu shot. Information and a parent consent sheet was sent out last week with the weekly bulletin. On the consent form, there is a place to include your insurance information and the Health Dept. will bill your insurance for the cost. However, if your insurance does not cover the cost of the flu vaccine, the cost is $20.00.
Checks should be made out to the Chouteau County Health Dept. Students must have a signed and completed consent form turned in by Thursday, October 1st, so they are certain to bring adequate vaccine.
BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
Classrooms are gathering Boxtops for Education again this year. Please be looking for box top forms in Thursday envelopes. The elementary classroom that gathers the most box tops by October 25th will receive a special treat. Proceeds will be used to purchase new playground balls and equipment.
Lifetouch will be here on Tuesday, October 13 at 1:00 PM to take picture retakes. If you missed picture day, this is your opportunity to get pictures, or if you wish to have your student’s picture retaken, you must return your pictures on October 13th in order to have pictures retaken. The Middle School Volleyball pictures will be taken at this time as well.
EAT UP, AND SAVE YOUR CANS!
The Student Council needs one hundred 14 oz. cans (2 7/8" diameter and 4 3/8" tall) WITH RIDGES for centerpieces they're making for the state student council conference in October. They are hoping to round up most of them by October 6, so they can use them to make the decorations on October 7.
Send the cans with your kids, or drop them by the school. Call Jane Suberg with questions! Thanks for your help!

FIRST LEGO LEAGUE
The Goodemoot and Bryce families are leading a First Lego League (FLL) team this year. In FLL, the children program an autonomous robot to score points on a playing field, create innovative solutions to a problem, all while being guided by the FLL Core Values. These three elements - the Robot Game, Project, and FLL Core Values - make up the yearly challenge. This year’s challenge is researching and finding innovative solutions to an aspect of our global trash problem. First Lego League is open to children in 4th through 8th grade. We are open to adding a few seriously committed children. We have limited space for a maximum of 4 more kids to join us on our endeavor. We are expecting to meet in one of our private residences, 3 or so times per week, and need parental involvement. Some planning and preparatory work has already begun and we will be continuing to work diligently through the final competition, which is February 7, 2016. There may be some costs associated with this endeavor. For more information on FLL, visit their webpage at http://www.firstlegoleague.org . If you and your child are interested, please give one of us a call soon. Amy Goodemoot 733-2272 or Jenni Bryce 738-4283.
