Jog/Hoop a-thon and Harvest Fest beginnings

by Mrs. Nilsen on October 7th, 2012

Weekly Homeroom News - 10/1-10/5

Jog/Hoop a-thon 2012!

What a fun event!  Thank you to those who participated and raised money for our school.  The seniors even went out again at the end of the day to raise even more money!  Don't forget that all forms and money are due to the office next Friday, October 12.  Check out the pictures below to see how much fun we had!

Harvest Festival 2012 - October 20

Homeroom began our discussions about Harvest Fest this week.  Lots of creative, unique ideas were thrown around.  We finally settled on having a "Witch's Lair" and utilizing a lot of my science equipment to make some spooky additions to Harvest Fest.  I will be contacting our room parent next week and putting up lists of supplies we need on the homeroom blog.  Check back in soon!
