Monday - Hats off to the Rivals! (Wear a favorite hat or crazy hat.)
Tuesday - Blue, Black, and White - the Colors of Victory! (Wear blue, black, white, or your favorite color from head to toe!)
Wednesday - Wrangle a Victory Rivals! (Dress like a cowboy/cowgirl.)
Thursday - Rest Up for Victory! (It's also Cuddle Up and Read for the Love of It for I Love to Read Month - wear pajamas, red, pink, etc.)
There will be a pep assembly/send-off on Thursday, February 18. We will set a time for the pep assembly as soon as we know when our teams will be playing that day.
I LOVE TO READ "DESIGN A BOOKMARK" CHALLENGE
There are just two and a half weeks remaining in the I Love to Read Bookmark Challenge. Mrs. Suberg reports that many wonderful designs have already been submitted, but there is still plenty of time remaining until the deadline. Bookmark designs will be accepted until February 29. All entries will be laminated for the children who designed them, and the winning design will be reproduced for everyone in the school.
CPR CLASS IN HIGHWOOD
The Fort Benton Ambulance will be putting on a one session CPR class for the public on Tuesday, February 23, at 7 p.m. at the Community Hall. Everyone in the Community is encouraged to attend.
We may think that if the need arises and we call 911 someone trained will be there soon to administer CPR or use a defibrillator. However, where every minute or second counts in saving a life, you might be the one that a loved one or friend has to depend upon since any delay lowers their chances of survival, or survival with a good outcome. Will you know what to do? CPR is not rocket science, nor does it take a lot of training to learn. Most people are capable of learning and performing CPR. Come to class and be prepared! Someone could really love you for doing it! See you there! ~Highwood Fire Department and QRU.
