Christopher Dyrland-Marquis and Kayla Hoffman were nominated to participate in the University of Montana's All-Star Wind Ensemble weekend Nov. 14-16. They will be rehearsing and performing with students from all over the northwest under the direction of UM's wonderful music faculty. The culminating concert is Sunday, Nov. 16 at 2 PM in Dennison Theater on the UM campus -- it is open to the public!
HONOR BAND AND CHOIR
Congratulations to Lizzie Lepore and Chris Dyrland-Marquis for making it into the North Central Montana Honor Band and Choir! They will travel to Cut Bank to rehearse December 1st and 2nd with around 100 other "cream-of-the-crop" high school student musicians. The culminating performance will be the evening of Dec. 2nd at Cut Bank High School -- the public is welcome to attend the concert.
CHRISTMAS CONCERT HELP NEEDED
If you are interested in helping with the Christmas Concert preparations, please contact Mr. Wilson at the school (733-2081). We'll be doing some minimal costuming of the students this year, as well as some extra-special decorating -- if either of those areas sound appealing, please let Mr. Wilson know. Thanks! The concert will be a very special occasion this year!
THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE: CATS VS. GRIZ!
The Leadership Class (together with the Student Council) divided itself into a Griz group and a Cat group to promote participation in the Thanksgiving Food Drive in some unique ways.
Next week, Griz fans have “Mashed Potato Monday”, where all Griz fans are encouraged to bring a box of mashed potatoes for the food drive. Remember, Griz fans who bring three food items to school in one day will receive a maroon helium balloon. Please see attachment for Bobcat food drive information.
13th ANNUAL REMEMBRANCE TREES
The holidays are a wonderful time for family and friends. They are also a time for remembering loved ones who are no longer living. The High School Student Council is sponsoring the 13th Annual Remembrance Tree program to honor and celebrate the lives of our loved ones. Christmas trees filled with lights to honor these individuals will be on display in front of the school from November 30 until New Year’s Day.
Bulbs, in memory of friends or loved ones, may be purchased for $5.00. Orders for bulbs must be received by Friday, November 28. A lighting ceremony, in which all community members are invited to attend, is scheduled for Sunday, November 30 at 4:30 P.M. During this ceremony, those who purchase bulbs will be invited to add their bulbs to the tree when the names of their loved ones are read during the ceremony. The lighting of the community Christmas tree will be held in conjunction with the Remembrance Tree ceremony! In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved inside.
Order forms are going out in the mail this week. You may also call the school office to place an order. (733-2081) Proceeds from the Remembrance Trees are used to purchase Christmas gifts for underprivileged children.
FLL (FIRST LEGO LEAGUE) ROBOTICS DATES
We are finding that we have a lot to do before the end of January and want to give our kids the best opportunity to accomplish as much as they can. Because of this, we will be meeting both on Mondays AND Thursdays, at least through the end of November (minus, of course, Thanksgiving Day.) Some of you may have other commitments and we want you to know we understand. We do ask that your kids come as often as they can, with the hope they can make it to at least one day per week.
The dates we are meeting for the remainder of the month are: November 13, 17, 20, and 24. We can't wait to see you there!

Mike Lee, son of Rick and Janet Lee, is marrying Bridget Bruggeman on December 27th in Tell City, Indiana. As a show of love from Highwood, I am planning on mailing a box of wedding cards for Mike and Bridget to open when they open their gifts. If you’d like to send a wedding card and maybe your 2014 family Christmas photo, a box will be set up in the school office. Jayne Plouffe will collect them and get them sent off in time for the big day. The family hopes to have a Montana reception for the couple next summer.
