Be aware and show you care!  Get your pink on!  Instead of wearing Rival colors to school on Friday, everyone is encouraged to wear pink in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Help us Pack the Gym with Pink for tonight's volleyball game in Geraldine and tomorrow's volleyball game at home.

FALL CONCERT
The fall music concert is Monday, October 27th, at 7:00 P.M. for grades K-12. You won’t want to miss this event!

SPIRIT BAGS
It's volleyball tournament time, and time to fill spirit bags for our Lady Rivals as they head to the district volleyball tournament.  Anyone interested in contributing treats to the spirit bags can drop them off at the school (Pat, Mrs. Suberg, Gracie, or Terry) by Wednesday, October 29.  We will be making 21 spirit bags.

MIDDLE SCHOOL EVENT
The middle schoolers are looking forward to a ghoulish good time at the Prossers' on Tuesday, October 28.  They will hop on their brooms (school bus) at 2:30 and be back to the school by 6:00 after having a spooktacular Halloween bash.  The frightening menu includes pickled eyeballs and boiled brains.

RED RIBBON WEEK
Love Yourself:  Be Drug Free is the theme for Red Ribbon Week next week.  Be sure to wear red to school on Wednesday to be eligible for Red Ribbon Week prizes at lunch. 

BOW HUNTING GRANT
Mrs. Aaring is pursuing a grant, available through Montana Fish and Wildlife that would make it possible to introduce bow hunting as an option for a Highwood after-school program. If awarded, Highwood would receive curriculum materials and equipment.  PEAK would provide funding for salaries, but having someone who is skilled in the area is the most difficult item. Any parent or community member who would be interested in teaching an afternoon class or Saturday program to intermediate/middle or high school students on bow hunting, please contact Becky at the school at 733-2081 or via email at baaring@highwood.k12.mt.us or becky.aaring@gmail.com.

LEGO LEAGUE!
Highwood's First Lego League- Robotics Team has begun! Students grades 4th-8th are invited to join us in an exciting time of Lego building, robot design, computer programming, team building and problem solving.  This is a student-led, coach-facilitated group that will be meeting weekly from 3:15-5:00 p.m. on Thursdays from now through January. Come join us for an exhilarating time of learning and growth!   We are also looking for community members willing to mentor the students while they work on areas such as engineering, graphic design, mechanics, and other applications. For more information, contact Mrs. DeBorde or Mrs. Goodemoot.

 

  BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION CONTEST!

This year the grade school is having a competition to see which class can collect the MOST Box Tops. The class who collects the most will earn a special party after our final submission date, in March!

Your child can bring them to school, in a baggie. Then attach them to the collection sheet for your class, or ask your child to bring a collection sheet home, and they can prepare their Box Tops from home. (Just make sure you include your teacher’s name, so your class will get credit.)

If the entire grade school can collect enough Box Tops to earn a total of $500, we will get to take a trip to the movie theater, to celebrate reaching our goal!!!

Please be sure to check the expiration date, as Box Tops will not accept any expired pieces.

If you have Box Tops, send them to school with your favorite Mountaineer.

If any of you have ideas, they would love them… if you want to help the night-of, wonderful… if you want to provide some snacks, that'd be great… if you want to decorate, they'd love it... if you want to provide some "workers" (aka students needing community service… etc.), that'd be great… if you want your class/group to put on a "station" or game, that'd be super…. and so on… Please contact Molly or Peter, 733-6815, if you want to be a part of this and, please, spread the word!
