Battle of the Books
The idea is that each advisory would have one representative for Battle of the Books.  Please discuss who has signed up and who would be a good person to represent your advisory.



Wednesday Intramurals
Start this week!  Please go to the gym area Wednesday at 2:45 or see someone in the MS Office if you are interested and didn't get the chance to sign up.

Thanks!
We asked you in assembly to make sure that the lockers were free of items on top of them and we also asked that the cafeteria tables were clean after you ate lunch.  A quick look around and it has to be said that both of those things are already improved.  With the exception of one table at lunch, the cafeteria was clean and the lockers are free of items on top.  Big thanks for your role in keeping our community clean and safe!

THINK!
Student Voice wants to remind everyone to THINK before they act or say something to another person. Stop and THINK. Ask yourself: (1) Is it True? (2) Is it Helpful? (3) Is it Inspiring? (4) Is it Necessary? (5) Is it Kind?

Course Registration
Today 6th and 7th graders will register for your elective courses in advisory.  Advisors, please use this presentation to guide your advisees through this process (you should start at the slide with today's date on it).

Battle of the Books
Big thanks to our Medieval librarians yesterday for rolling out the Battle of the Books with such gusto.  If you are interested in participating, please use this doc to sign up.  Some details from the librarians:

What with all the slashing of swords and battle cries at yesterday's assembly, you might not be clear about parts of the message regarding the MS Battle of the Books competition. Here is a list of key points:

  • Teams are divided by grade level.
  • Four books are assigned to each team.
  • Weekly Friday activities occur during the school day.
  • Battle preparations and final competition runs March 24 -May 5.
  • You must sign up by Friday, Feb.7th if you wish to participate.
We look forward to going into battle with you! 

Wednesday Intramurals
As Mr. Ney Viera discussed in assembly last week, Wednesday Intramurals will begin soon- but not tomorrow as we had hoped. You can use this doc to sign up if you are interested.
