Penny Wars
Student Council is hosting its annual Penny Wars the weeks of February 25 - March 8. Penny Wars is a competition between the grades. Pennies count as points, and silver coins and dollars take away points from the grade you put them in. For example a penny is worth plus 1 point where as a $1 is worth minus 100 points.  The grade bins will be placed outside the media center. You only have two weeks (starting Monday) so act fast! The prize is a Popsicle party for the winning grade!  All donations go to Mabry's Relay for Life, which helps cancer researchers. Your participation and donations can help save lives!

Safety Tip of the Week
Constantly talk to your kids about safety reminders on the street. Have kids tell you when it is OK to cross a street - forcing them to look both ways and make the decision. Remind them that they are too short for cars to see and they need to be cautious. Same goes for parking lots - they should stay with you until they are taller than you. Any car backing up is unlikely to see them until then.
