Word of the Week:

    Knowledgeable – When you are knowledgeable, you learn about many things. You develop and use thinking skills.


    No thief, however skillful, can rob one of knowledge, and that is why knowledge is the best and safest treasure to acquire.

    L. Frank Baum, The Lost Princess of Oz

    Jag Time classes will start collecting money for the USD 259 Turkey Drive starting November 13th until 15th. The Jag Class with the highest amount collected will be given an extra special morning treat and their teacher will wear the turkey hat. The grade that donates the most money will earn 3 points towards the Class of the Year Competition.

    Update on Turkey Drive:  Currently we have raised a total of $183.82.  6th grade is in the lead with $83.91, 8th grade in 2nd with $81.81 and 3rd place is 7th at $18.10.  We can do better and this is for Class of the Year points.  Classes in the lead for a morning treat and their teacher has to wear the Turkey hat.  1st place Mr. Mowder, 2nd place Ms. Souriya, and 3rd place Ms. Jensen.  Good luck and bring in those donations.
