Daily Announcements - 10/5/2022

Good Morning Mavericks! Today is Wednesday, October 5th, 2022 

Attention all Mavericks:Food Drive Update! Currently, Miss Karvelius’ SST Homeroom class is in the lead with a class average of 40 items per student! Can you catch up? Remember, the SST competition is based upon the average number of items per student, not the total number. This makes the competition more fair. Please continue to bring in your donations of non-perishable goods or a monetary donation to your Student Support homeroom for a variety of incentives. 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. Keep up the great work, MAVS!
