Field Day
Today you will discuss with your fellow advisees and your advisor which events you will be participating in next Thursday, December 12.  Here is the document that your advisor will use to sign everyone up.  You will need to be flexible in terms of what sports you participate in.  Maybe target three of these sports that you could play to represent your House and then prioritize representing your House where they need you over your individual preferences (remember that being Inclusive includes respecting the strengths of others):  Soccer, Floorball, Table Tennis, Basketball and Badminton

Typhoon Haiyan Fundraiser - House Challenge!
As we discussed in Assembly on Monday, we are challenging each House to see who can raise the most money for the Philippine Science High School, which was largely destroyed by the typhoon. Please ask your family, friends, neighbors, teachers, etc. to donate money!

Unfortunately, two of the House posters have been torn down. It is our plan to replace them and move forward with the hope that we can compete for the benefit of the students of Philippine Science High School without any future incidents such as these. Let's raise the money in the spirit of healthy competition. Thanks!

Accelerated Math Update


ISTA Trip
If you are interested in the ISTA trip to Turkey in March, 2014, make sure you talk to Ms Moraes!

Pay It Forward
So far the Pay It Forward movement has seen pizza delivered to the guards at school, coaches receiving extra help picking up equipment after practice and a signed SPFC jersey given to a high school student who is a big fan.  Let's remember that all of those deeds will in turn spark more good deeds, so if you haven't Paid It Forward yet you can still have an impact by starting today!

Last year we had quite a good boys softball team and we are looking to start the same type of tradition with a girls team.  If you are interested in playing girls softball this year please let your PE teacher or Rachel Bissell know.





Lost: 1) a white hoodie with a zippered front with "AERO" written in purple vertically on the side 2) a black 3G iPhone with a silver back.
If you have any information about either of these, please let someone in the MS Office know.
