  • Singers age 7 to 18 are invited to pick up a flyer in the office for the Manistee Benzie Area Childrens' Chorus, now in its 12th season!  We sing a variety of music from near and far, movie and musical themes and even in other languages.  Join experienced singers in making music our own ~ It feels good to sing! 
  • Our varsity boys basketball team pulled out an impressive win over Pine River 67 to 63. Good job BOBCATS!!!
  • Congratulations to the Varsity Girls on their 60-20 win over Marion last night.  Also, to the boys on their 67-63 win over Pine River. 
  • Tonight is Senior Night for the Lady Bobcats.  Marie, Lindsey, Taytum and Kalin have represented Brethren Basketball since 5th grade, sure would be special if all of you could give them one night!  
  • Tonight's game vs. Lake Lelanau St. Mary's should prove to be monumental for the Lady Bobcats.  Taytum Myers is resting on 980 points; just 20 shy of a 1000 milestone.  This achievement has never been accomplished in the history of Brethren Basketball.  Please make an effort to attend tonight's game in support of the Seniors and Taytum's 1000 points!  Let's pack the bleachers for these awesome Cats! 
  • Congrats to Stella Estes who placed 3rd in the third round of the Knight's of Columbus Free Throw Shoot.  Way to represent Stella!

  • NHS members:  Don't forget you need to check in with the 4th hour class you signed up to count.  Please collect and count their money and deliver it to my room.  We need to do this daily so we can keep a running tally of which class is in the lead.

  • Attention 6-12 students!  Don't forget this week is our Pennies for Patients fundraiser!  The 4th hour class that raises the most money will win a pizza party!  Our school-wide goal is to raise $1000.  Please help us to reach this goal by bringing in your spare change or dollar bills.  The proceeds of this fundraiser will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  The mission of LLS is to find cures and ensure treatment for blood cancer patients.  Please help us support this worthy cause.  
  • Seniors there are 8 days left until the deadline for collecting senior pictures is upon us.  To date, ten, yes I said, ten seniors have turned in their senior picture to Mrs. Mobley.  Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of 2017, these pictures are for more than just the yearbook, they are also sent to the newspaper for their spring senior spotlight.  Please make this a priority, others are depending on your cooperation.
