Daily Announcements - 10/3/2022

Good Morning Mavericks! Today is Monday, October 3rd, 2022 

Attention all Mavericks:Today is the first day of the Food Drive! After announcements, Student Council members should collect all donations, including money, and bring them to Miss Phillips in D128. This is a science lab directly across from the MPR. As a reminder, the Food Drive will run today, October 3rd through Wednesday, October 12th. Bring your donations of non-perishable goods or a monetary donation to your Student Support homeroom for a variety of incentives. A donation of $1 is good for 8 items donated. For the first item donated, you will receive a BULLSEYE. Donate your first 5 items and get a “FASTPASS” to jump the lunch line. Get your entire SST homeroom involved, and if your class has the most items per person, your class will earn a pizza party! Let’s make this the BEST year yet, MAVS!

Do you love Math? Do you love Competition?  Then the Murphy Math team is the place for you. The Competition Series is ideal for students who have a talent and passion for math and need to be challenged. Students will engage in exciting, "bee-style" contests in which they will compete against and alongside other bright, motivated students.  Tryouts will be held on Tuesday Oct. 11 in Ms. Borneman's room F123 from 3:15-4:30.  See your math teacher for more information and the try out form or grab one outside Ms. Borneman's room.

What would you do if you were given $100,000? Would you spend it all at once? Would you think about putting some of it in the bank? Would you invest it in the stock market and watch it grow?  Join the Stock Market Club and you will get $100,000 to invest in the stock market game.  You and your team members will work to make the most money possible in 4 months.  The stock Market game club starts on Monday October 17.  Get a permission slip from your math teacher, in student services, or in the bulletin.  Don’t miss out on this opportunity to invest $100,000 in the stock market game.
