The 7th annual SOAR Basketball Game will take place in the North gym next Saturday, January 30th. Doors open at 9:30am, and the game will begin at 10:00am. Entrance to the game is free, and your attendance would be greatly appreciated. Bring your friends and family, too!  It would be awesome to have a large student section for this event.

Attention all those interested in attending the Model United Nations Conference this March. You need to decide which country you would like to represent by Wednesday, January 27th. Please check Google classroom so you know how to submit your country request.

R.A.I.S.E is a club here at school that are helping to spread awareness of drug and alcohol abuse here in our school and the community. R.A.I.S.E stands for Recovery Allies & Individuals Supporting Each other. This week is National Alcohol and Drug Awareness Week. In 2013, despite Wisconsin’s reputation for alcohol consumption, the state ranked 2% lower than the nation’s average in all. From 2002 to 2010 current alcohol use among adolescents went down by 20%.

At Democratic League this Thursday discuss the issues not the campaign hype.  Sign up during I E. Maybe you can’t vote but you CAN get involved!

There will be tennis open hitting on Friday, Jan. 29th at Fox Cities Racquet Club from 5 PM to 6 PM.  Any boys and girls interested are welcome to come.  If you have any questions, see Mr. Burt in room 1321.
