Until a later date breakfast and lunch are free of charge to all students. If you buy extras such as ice cream & chips, there will be a charge. You can also now eat breakfast in the cafeteria if you choose to do so or you can take it to your classroom. 

Students, please remember to bring your water bottle from home for the school day.

If you would like to buy a Blue Jay water bottle, see Mrs. Schamerloh in the 7 Blue hallway, Room 247. The cost is $2.

If you are interested in joining FFA, see Mrs. Bade in Room 255 in the Jay wing or talk to your Science teacher. FFA is a club that focuses on agriculture with plant and animal science. There are registration forms on the FFA bulletin board at the end of the 7 White hallway.

7th & 8th grade boys interested in playing basketball this year need to see Coach Hornback in Room 144 downstairs to sign up to receive information about upcoming events and tryouts. 

If interested in Brain Bowl, it is a competition that's like Jeopardy!, but for teams.  Questions cover History, Science, Literature, Art, and all kinds of other stuff.  If there's a subject you're interested in, you'll learn lots more about it through this game.  We typically travel and play around 6 tournaments a year, and practice every week.  If you have any questions, contact David Dennis at david.dennis@sdowmo.org
