This week NHS will be hosting a Penny War fundraiser to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). There will be jars in the main office for participating faculty members.  Each faculty member will be paired with one or two others.  Out of each of the groups, during Friday's Spring Homecoming Pep Rally, the faculty member with the highest amount of money in their jar gets a pie in the face and the one with the lowest total gets to throw the pie!  So check those cushions and floorboards for some change, and bring it on in for a great cause and for the chance to witness some pie shenanigans.  Here are the faculty groups:

·         Halverson – Doely – Dible

·         Beehler – Sweeney – Holt

·         Bomgaars – Tighe – Munson

·         Graettinger – Bruning – Schwarck

·         Maschino – Davis – Bauermeister

Currently Doely, Graettenger, Maschino, Beehler are currently in the lead of each of their respective groups. And Bomgaars, Tighe and Munson are in a dead heat.  Be sure to have your voice heard and bring the donation to the teacher's jar of your choice!  NHS members will have the jars in the student center during lunch waves today and Friday.

The Spencer High School Blood Drive is coming up on Monday, March 13, from 9 AM to 2:00 PM.  Sign up to donate blood and help the students reach their blood drive goal of 52 donations!  Please click the link below to schedule your appointment:  make an appointment  There is also be a sign-up posted in the main office.

Important Update (please read!):

Currently Doely, Graettenger, Maschino, Beehler are currently in the lead of each of their respective groups.

·         Halverson – Doely – Dible

·         Beehler – Sweeney – Holt

MEDIA RELEASE: Iowa Youth Straw Poll results

 

DES MOINES – Secretary of State Paul Pate’s Iowa Youth Straw Poll was a resounding success with more than 57,000 students from more than 250 schools across the state participating. Most of the schools cast their ballots on November 1.

 

“I think it was a great opportunity for them to see first-hand how the process works. It also gives them a running start for the next election cycle and also receive a little tutoring at the same time, so they’ll have a good base of knowledge for Iowa’s elections process,” Secretary Pate said. “I hope this fired them up and will also spur them to encourage their parents, neighbors and friends to get out and vote.”

 

Here are the statewide results as of 6:45 p.m. Tuesday night, listing only candidates that received at least five percent of the vote total:

 

U.S. PRESIDENT

Donald Trump-46%

Hillary Clinton-36%

Gary Johnson-7%

 

U.S. SENATE

Charles Grassley-62%

Patty Judge-25%

Charles Aldrich-5%

Jim Hennager-5%

 

Here are the results from each congressional district:

 

U.S. HOUSE-DISTRICT 1

Rod Blum-59%

Monica Vernon-41%

More than 12,200 votes cast

 

U.S. HOUSE-DISTRICT 2

Dave Loebsack-50%

Christopher Peters-50%

Loebsack leads 3,234-3,230

 

U.S. HOUSE-DISTRICT 3

David Young-56%

Jim Mowrer-31%4

Bryan Jack Holder-6%

More than 13,750 votes cast
