Greetings fellow millennials! Starting Monday, we're collecting food for the food pantry. Please donate cans and non-perishable items by placing them in the decorated food pantry bins in your homeroom. We are also selling duct tape at lunch to duct tape your teachers to a wall, so keep your ears open for that! We hope you CAN donate. *laughs* Ever wanted to tape a teacher to a wall? Two of our fellow teachers, Mr. Cotter and Mr. Conant, have volunteered to be taped to a wall as the culminating event for our Pennies for Patients drive which benefited the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. If you would like to assist in the act of taping a teacher, you can buy duct tape at lunch from Monday April 10th to Thursday April 13th. You can buy one foot of tape for $1, 10 feet for $5, 15 feet for $10, 20 feet for $15, or an entire roll of duct tape for $50! One entire roll of tape is about 165 feet of tape! If you would like to buy tape with someone else, you can share your roll. So put your pennies together and tape one of your middle school teachers for charity!

Hey 8th grade students, we're looking for basketball players. If you'd like to play against some of your teachers in our annual student/faculty basketball game, go to the school website, click on ONLINE RESOURCES, and then STUDENT BBALL PLAYERS SIGN-UP. Just a reminder, playing in the basketball game is open to 8th graders only. One more time: if you'd like to play, go to our school website, online resources, and choose Student Bball Players Sign-up. You have until Tuesday to sign-up!

6th and 7th graders, don't be mad that you can't play in the Student/Faculty Basketball Game! Instead, sign up to participate in the half-time show games. Go to our school website, then ONLINE RESOURCES, and choose HALFTIME SHOW SIGN-UPS. You'll have your choice of the 3-point contest or the Freeze Dance. First come, first serve, so sign-up now to get the game you prefer! Once more, this is ONLY for 6th and 7th graders, go to our website, then online resources, and choose Halftime Show Sign-ups.

All 7th and 8th grade band and chorus students interested in performing the National Anthem at next week's pep rally should email Mr. Grina ASAP.

Attention all incoming 7th and 8th grade girls! If you are interested in playing Holliston volleyball this coming fall please see Coach Kwas or Coach Perry before April break.

Any 6th or 8th grade student who needs to make up a portion of the MCAS should report to the multi-purpose room after the announcements.
