Today is the deadline for Winter Sports forms. Students not handing them in today with a current doctor's physical may not be eligible for day one of the winter season on December 1st. All fall uniforms are also due back today.
Good luck to the Cheerleading and Boys Soccer teams this weekend as they compete for State Championships. Cheer will be in action on Sunday in Lowell, while Soccer goes for the DI State Title on Saturday vs. Amherst at 5:00pm at WPI in Worcester. Fan buses will leave from the B Gym on Saturday at 3:30pm. Make sure to reserve your seat by the end of the day today by signing up in Athletic Office along with your payment of $2.00.
Looking to sport your Rocket colors and stay warm on Saturday? Retro 1980s winter stocking hats will be on sale today only in the Athletics Office for $20.
Throughout Spirit Week and leading up to the Pep Rally the Student Council is sponsoring a Penny Wars Fundraiser. There will be a bucket in the main lobby for each grade. The goal is to collect as many pennies in the bucket for your grade by next Wednesday. The catch: any silver coins (nickels, dimes, quarters) negate any pennies you have collected. So you can "sabotage" other classes by putting other coins into other class buckets. Please bring in your spare change to help raise funds for the class in a fun and competitive way. Results will be announced at the Pep Rally.
The Homecoming Dance will be Tuesday night November 25th from 7-10 in the A Gym. "Tickets" will be on sale in the cafeteria during lunch now through next Tuesday. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Be sure to buy early!
Spirit Week culminates next week when you should wear your class shirts on Tuesday and school colors on Wednesday. Be sure to watch the Student vs. Faculty Basketball game after school on Tuesday, attend the Homecoming Dance Tuesday night, enjoy the Pep Rally and Powder Puff games on Wednesday, and then watch our Rockets Football team take on Wellesley Thanksgiving Day.
Students Acting to Make a Difference (SAMD) will be performing the musical "RENT" at the Pollard Middle School tonight and tomorrow night at 7:30pm and Sunday, Nov. 23rd at 2:30 p.m. Tickets will be sold during all the lunch blocks outside the cafeteria all week. They expect a sold out show, so order your tickets soon!
