Good Morning –

This week as part of our Don’t Be Mean Challenge, we are going to focus on gossip.  The definition of gossip is: casual conversation about other people typically involving details that are untrue.  Most of us know what it feels like to be gossiped about and we also have been involved in gossiping about others.  Let’s make an effort this week to stay away from gossip and see it for what it is: mean behavior.  Our Don’t Be Mean December quote for today is…The only thing more frustrating than gossipers are those who listen to the gossipers and repeat the gossip.

Today’s "Holidays Around the World" trivia challenge clue is: This religion just celebrated the festival of Diwali, a festival of lights honoring the goddess Lakshmi, one of their many gods and goddesses.  There were lots of oil lamps burning in India and at the special celebration just held two weeks ago in Grand Rapids to welcome Lakshmi into their homes.  They also set off firecrackers to scare off evil spirits.

Remember that the clue for each day will be given during morning announcements.  Match the clue with the country or religion from the bulletin board in the social studies hallway and mark the date of the announcement and the number of the matching "ornament."  Good luck! 

The boys’ basketball teams take on the Mason County Central Spartans today at home at 4:00. Come support our teams!

Team pictures with Geskus will be today at 3:00pm. Please have your orders filled out and ready to give to the photographer. Stop in the office and pick up another form if you need one.

Tomorrow is another Late Start Day.  Please report to your bus stop or school exactly one hour later.

The weight room will be open today after school for any 7th and 8th grade football player to review the basics of out-of-season weight training.  This is mostly intended for those players who are not participating in a winter sport, but all are welcome. This will be a low intensity reintroduction of the basics.

Today starts the "Holidays Around the World" trivia challenge.  In your social studies classes you will receive the answer document you will need for the next two weeks.

The clue for each day will be given during morning announcements.  Match the clue with the country or religion from the bulletin board in the social studies hallway and mark the date of the announcement and the number of the matching "ornament."

Good luck!  Today's clue:  Many of our traditions come from this country because we were once part of their empire.   There is no one major area of the United States where you would find this ethnic group because they are distributed throughout the country.  The famous story “A Christmas Carol” is set in the capital city of London.

The seventh grade team for the Montague Wildcats won many of the basketball categories last night, however Coach Woodwyk is proud of hard the members worked on and off the court.  Keep up the great work.  The Eagles lost 31-11. Scoring for the Eagles was:

Austin Fairchild 4 points

Tyler Carlson 8 points

Marcus Rodger 2 points

Tanner Karl 4 points

Kolbe Stewart 2 points

The Wildcats dominated many of the stats in the eighth grade game.  The Eagles lost with a score of 44-18.  Restore your pride and practice hard tonight.  Practice will be held from 3:00 -5:00 pm for 7th grade team and 5:00 -6:30 pm for the 8th grade team.   Team pictures with Geskus will be at 3:00pm on Wednesday.  Please have your orders filled out and ready to give to the photographer.  Stop in the office and pick up another form if you need one.

The Penny War is off to a great start.  In an early lead, we have Mr. VanHeest's and Mrs. Shultz's classes at the top.  We had several teachers not turn in their collection trees.  Teachers:  Don't forget to send down a student council member each morning with your collection tree to be counted for your class.  Thank you all for the great participation in the penny war to raise money for the Holiday Helper program.

The Geography Bee finals will be held today (12/9) at 2:45 pm in the high school media center.  Good luck to all students who are participating in this.

Attention Students: The Penny War begins today (12/8).  Please give your pennies and loose change to your first hour teacher to collect.  After your first hour teacher collects all of your money, have one student send your tree to Room 16 during the announcements in order to be counted by the middle school student council members.  The money is going towards the Holiday Helper program to help the families in our community have a nice holiday.  Thank you in advance for helping make the holiday spirit week successful!

The Geography Bee finals will be held this Tuesday (12/9) at 2:45 pm in the high school media center.  Good luck to all students who are participating in this.

The Oakridge Eagles won their game against the Hart Pirates with a score of 42 to 20.  The eagles had a strong second half - they dominated the boards, passed with determination and scored with execution.  Here is a  recap of the scoring:

Austin Fairchild had a team high of 12 points

Tanner Karel 10 pts., also 4 of 5 points from the free throw line

Leroy Quinn 8 pts.

Zack Campell

William Watson 5 pts.

Kolbe Stewart 4 pts.

Tyler Carlson 4 pts.

Marcus Rogers 4 pts.

Blake Cowels 2 pts.

Jacob Barber 2 pts.

Mason Weaver 2 pts.

The eighth grade team lost to the Pirates, but results to the game are not available at this time.  Next Monday the eagles play the Montague Wildcats at Montague.  Good luck to both teams.

November is gone, but hopefully our Be Nice focus will not be forgotten.  With the new month, though, we’ll start a new focus: December is Don’t Be Mean month.  Even with the nicest of intentions, we’re all mean sometimes.  This month we’ll work on identifying the ways we can be mean, often without even realizing it or intending it.  This week let’s talk about sarcasm.  Sarcasm can be very funny… but can also be very hurtful.  Webster’s dictionary defines sarcasm as “a remark made usually to hurt someone’s feelings or show scorn; a cutting remark.”  It actually comes from a Greek verb that literally means “to tear flesh like a dog.” Think about how you might define sarcasm today.

The media center is hosting a Scholastic Book Fair all this week.  This event started Monday (12/1) and continues through Friday (12/5) from 7:30 am – 3:30 pm.  Orders are also accepted online until December 16th.  Try and attend this event and support our media center.

Band members will be participating in the State Solo and Ensemble Festival this Saturday.  Good luck to all members who are involved with this.

This week’s November is Be Nice focus is meeting someone new. Many of us tend to stay within our own circle of friends and find branching out to be uncomfortable. The challenge for this week is to look for those you don’t know and start up a conversation. Find things you have in common. Make someone’s day that you don’t even know.  Maybe sit by someone you don’t normally sit by at lunch.  Make an effort each day this week to reach out to someone outside of your own circle of friends and see what happens! The reward could be great for you as well as for the person you meet! A quote to think about today is “There are too many great people in the world to be narrow minded and not open yourself up to the opportunity of meeting all of them.”

Tomorrow (11/19) is a half day for all students.  Students will be dismissed at 11:05 am.

We’re continuing Be Nice November this week by focusing on Random Acts of Kindness. Doing good deeds adds meaning to our own lives, even though it seems like the point is to add meaning to someone else’s.  In fact, studies have shown that usually the kind person has a bigger boost of positive emotions even than the receiver!  The quote for today: Leo Buscaglia said, “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”  Today, we’ll announce how many random acts of kindness were performed!

Next Wednesday (11/19) is a half day for all students.  Students will be dismissed at 11:05 am.

Doing good deeds adds meaning to our own lives, even though it seems like the point is to add meaning to someone else’s.  In fact, studies have shown that usually the kind person has a bigger boost of positive emotions even than the receiver!

Every day this week, ten 7th grade students and ten 8th grade students will be given a Random Act of Kindness card. Those twenty students will perform a random act of kindness, put a tally mark on the back of their card, and give the card to the person who they did a random act of kindness for.  That person will then repeat the process by performing a random act of kindness, adding a tally mark to the card, and passing it on.  These random acts of kindness don’t have to be big things.  If you’re not sure what to do, check the hallways for posters with lists of random acts of kindness ideas.  At the end of the day, we’ll make an announcement asking any student who has a random act of kindness card to return it to the office.  Teachers can play, too! At the end of the week, we’ll announce how many random acts of kindness were performed!

Those twenty students will perform a random act of kindness, put a tally mark on the back of their card, and give the card to the person who they did a random act of kindness for.  That person will then repeat the process by performing a random act of kindness, adding a tally mark to the card, and passing it on.  These random acts of kindness don’t have to be big things.  If you’re not sure what to do, check the hallways for posters with lists of random acts of kindness ideas.  At the end of the day, we’ll make an announcement asking any student who has a random act of kindness card to return it to the office.  Teachers can play, too! At the end of the week, we’ll announce how many random acts of kindness were performed! 

The quote for today is: “Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world.  For indeed, that’s all who ever has”

The 8th grade girls' basketball team won 2 games this week to run its record to 8-0.  Tuesday the fiery hot shooting and fast breaking eagles beat Shelby 104-3 and yesterday beat a bunch of tall Whitehall girls 57-10.  All the girls are playing great defense, they are communicating well, and best of all playing "TOGETHER-Team Basketball."  Next Tuesday Ravenna comes to town. 7th grade starts at 4:00.

At this time all classes need to vote for class color and send ballots to Room #16.  If you do not have enough ballots, please report to Room #16.
