Student Bulletin Wednesday, January 6 Day 2
SID (Standard Improvement Day) is scheduled for Tuesday, January 12th.
The HS SODA group (students opposed to drugs and alcohol) is teaming with the American Heart Association to have an all school RED OUT Thursday, Jan 14th. To buy an AHA shirt visit the Monti Sports webstore. https://sodaandahafundraiser.itemorder.com Deadline to order shirts is Monday, January 11th at 11:59 PM.
The basketball game versus Maquoketa Valley on Jan 14th will also be a RED OUT with fans at home and at the game encouraged to buy an AHA shirt and wear it to watch the game. All proceeds will go to the American Heart Association and the MHS SODA.
American Heart Association Heart Sale. Each heart is $1. You can put your name on it or dedicate it to someone.
If MHS sells more than 100 hearts we will have a pie in the face of a student. If we sell more than 200 we will have a pie in the face of both a student and a teacher. At 300 we’ll have student, teacher and Mrs. Young. And if we can pull off selling 400 Dr. Jaeger the superintendent has agreed to take a pie in the face. We have about 400 people in the building with students and staff so hopefully that is attainable. For each heart you purchase your name goes in the drawing to put the pie in someone’s face. So if you buy 5 then you get your name in the drawing 5 times. Then we will have a lottery drawing to see who gets to put a pie in the face of someone.
SODA students will be selling the hearts in the commons before school and during lunch this week and next. Look for them if you’d like to support a great cause.
