Dollar War Results - The battle is over and the Dollar Wars victors this year are the seniors! Counting dollars as positive and $5 bills as negative, the seniors came in first, the juniors second, the freshmen third, and the sophomores last. With very generous donations by the teachers, we were able to raise $1,295 for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. The teachers raised the most, so they will be able to wear jeans for a week (thanks Mr. Driver). Since the senior class won the interclass battle, four seniors who contributed at least $5 were drawn at random to win Amazon gift cards. See Mr. Zahler to collect your prizes.

NASA Engineer Group - The NASA Engineering group will NOT meet this week.

Captain’s Council  - There will be a Captain’s Council meeting in Mr. Cornell’s room Friday morning at 7:55 AM.
