Wow, where has the time gone, I can't believe that it is already March. It seems as though we just finished with our winter break!
To start things out, I want to remind everyone that tomorrow is ACT testing for all juniors. If you are a parent of a junior, please make sure that they get plenty of rest, a good breakfast and please make sure your student is to school on time. We will be shipping to our off school site right after attendance has been taken. I also want to be clear that they are not to have their cell phones with them during testing, if they use their phones or a phone goes off during the test, this could invalidate everyone in the rooms test per ACT's testing regulations. So I ask for your help with this one rule!
Congratulations to our women's varsity basketball team as they have clinched the KVA Conference Championship last Friday as they beat Galesburg-Augusta 41-32! Keeley Hinton led the panthers by scoring 13 points; Ryann Stutz had 9 and Paige Berg with 8 points. This ends the Lady Panthers regular season with a 13-1 conference record and the first KVA title in several years! The ladies kick off their first round of districts against Pennfield. Their game begins at 6:00 at Harper Creek High School; please go help support them if you can!
In boy's basketball, the men dropped a very close one in GA Friday by a score of 48-40! The Panthers were leading going into the fourth quarter, but could not hold the lead.
Another reminder to everyone interested, Grad Bash will be holding a scrapbooking crop event this Saturday, March 7th from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm in the high schools commons area. The cost is $30 for the day which will include a light breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as some snacks throughout the day. There will also be several vendors on sight from Home-Based Businesses selling their products. If you have any questions or if you want to register please contact Kim Claflin at 547-7085.
Thank you and have a great week!
