Over the past couple days, you may have noticed the new posters around the hallways.  During the month of October, the advisory groups of Señora Beltran, Mrs. Lussier and  Ms. Fulginiti will be having a winter clothing drive, for the Immigrant and Refugee Rights Network. This Network provides refugees, as well as the less fortunate, with warm winter clothing. This winter, the Network is asking for coats, boots, hats, snow pants, gloves, mittens and blankets. There will be donation bins outside of each guidance counselor’s office, and in the lobby by the office. This drive ends October 31st,  so if you want to donate, please do it before then. Thanks, and have a great day. 
Attention artists: Todays Inktober prompt word is chicken!  That's right you heard correctly it's "chicken"!   Can not wait to see what you draw.

Congrats to the 8th grade girls volleyball team in their victories against Medway and Medfield this week!  The 8th grade volleyball team is currently  undefeated at 6-0 thanks in part to exceptional communication and work ethic exhibited by Amanda F., Amanda I., Lucy, Jaclyn, Kathleen, Kiley, Ania, Brenna, Ava, Lauren, Josie, Mia, Ellie, and Dorothy!  GO RAMS!

Despite losing 2 sets to 1 to a strong Grade 8 Medfield team, the Grade 7 Volleyball squad put forth a fantastic effort yesterday, led by co-captains, Vanessa D. and Julia S.  Outstanding performances were on display by teammates Brooke R., Melanie B.  Vanessa D., Grace C., Samantha Z., and Makayla M.   Great team effort, Ladies!

Homeroom teachers - please place any food pantry items you have in the hallway by advisory time today.  A couple groups will be coming around to collect and organize the items.  Thanks!

A couple of reminders and updates to all students around lunches. Starting soon we will have a new staff member assisting us in the cafeteria. Her name is Pam, and some of you may recognize her. Just as you should be with Linda, please be sure to show respectful behavior, remaining in your seats unless buying or throwing something out. In order for us to be able to continue with laps at lunch, we need you to be able to show controlled behavior in the cafe at all times.  Additionally, please be sure to clean up your tables and throw all trash out.
