All School:

The Brethren boys JV and Varsity basketball teams will travel to MCC tonight for their first game of the season!! 

Next Friday, we will be having an "UGLY SHIRT" contest for ALL staff and students Kdg. - 12th grade.  There will
be 1st and 2nd place prizes awarded to each group (staff, elem. MS & HS).  All you need to do is wear an
ugly sweater, shirt, or sweatshirt that has to do with a Christmas theme.

There will be a silent auction at the girls' game tomorrow.  A big item to bid on is two certificates for downhill
lift tickets at Crystal Mt.  Each are valued @ 65.00.  Great Christmas ideas!

Mrs. Wojo has Bobcat wear available in room 129.  Long sleeve shirts, short sleeve shirts, girls shirts, 
sweatshirts, hats and bags are now available!  Come down at your lunch if you want to buy!  Great Christmas

The Giving Tree still has several items that need to be fulfilled.  We are helping two very large families.  If you
have not yet had a chance to choose an item from the tree, please see Mrs. Amstutz or the NHS students during
high school lunch, or choose an ornament from the tree at the game tonight.  Many of the items are truly family
needs such as boots and clothing.  Please help if you can.  Thank You!

Next Tuesday, the 17th, our boys host MCE.  This will be the 4th annual "Hoops for a Cause" game.  Upon the 
first Bobcat field goal, you will have the opportunity to throw new and gently used winter garments onto the 
floor.  All donated clothing will go to Coats for Kids and Love INC.  Anyone who brings winter garments to throw
will receive $1 off admission to the game as well.

High School:

Happy 16th Birthday to Yurie today from your family and friends

Tomorrow is the day we wanted them completed by.  Come see me at lunch if you are going to paint .  Mobley!

Grades 9 - 12, are you interested in creating powerful poetry?  Mrs. Edmondson is starting Slam Poetry 
Workshops.  Session 1 will be next Wednesday, December 18th in room 136 at 7:45 am.  It is a very brief 
beginning session.  At this session we'll get things started and get an idea of dates and times for the remaining
sessions.  Not sure what Slam Poetry is?  Stop by and ask!
