Morning Announcements – Tuesday, January 27, 2015

There is no school today, but we do have some news to share with you.

1. This year’s National Geographic Bee champion is 6th grader Lillian Frank. When the top ten finalists in the school were narrowed down to two for the Championship Round, it was Lillian and 7th grader Eden Salzig remaining. Lillian and Eden went through the three final questions and then into several tiebreaking rounds before Lillian prevailed. Lillian now takes a test to see if she is one of the top 100 in Maine. If she is, she’ll be headed to the State Level of the National Geographic Bee. Way to go, Lillian!

2. There will be a grade 5 Beginner Band “In-formance” this Thursday, January 29 at 6:30 PM.

3. Due to the concert on Thursday, the starting time of the JV basketball games has been moved up to 3:00 instead of the usual 3:30. 

4. This Friday, let’s have a New England Patriots Spirit Day in anticipation of Sunday’s Super Bowl. Patriots’ jerseys, t-shirts and hats are great to wear.

5. 8th graders are reminded that your Morton’s Moo sales packets are due on Wednesday.
