Warriorettes Give Back Game a Success

The Scottsburg Warriorettes Booster Club hosted their annual “Soap & Towel” game on Saturday, November 5th. This year however, the Booster Club decided to use the opportunity to raise money for Scottsburg student Bree Brown who is battling Stage 4 Ewing’s Sarcoma.

The event was called “Warriorettes Give Back” and give back they did!! The Booster Club raised $1,202.00 to help Bree and her family with medical costs. The crowd got the opportunity to see this years middle and high school teams in action. The event was a huge success in the eyes of all who attended!

ISTEP Results are In

Hello Parents,
This message is for parents of any of our students that took the ISTEP test last year. We just received the student reports from last spring's ISTEP exam this week and are going to distribute them to students today. Parents should have received a parent report early in August where you could have submitted for a rescore. Please be sure to ask your student for this report if you would like to see it. If your student did not take one of these exams, please disregard this message.

As a reminder to any parents of current Juniors, students needed to pass either this ISTEP or the ECA exam that was also given last year. If they did not pass last year, we are working with your child so that they can pass this year when they take them again.

If you have any questions, feel free to call or email and we will try to answer.

Thank you.

Sunshine Club at State Convention

State convention was held at Western Boone High School on Saturday, November fifth. This years convention we discussed fundraising and event ideas with other chapters. Our keynote speaker spoke to us about knowing ourselves, our mission, and how to take action. Our chapter got several great ideas and really bonded through this experience. Next year we hope to expand our chapters attendance, and make even more memories.

In addition to attending Sunshine State Conference, Sunshine girls followed through with their creed and gave back to others during the trip. Mrs. Walton had been training with Team World Vision for her first half marathon to raise funds for children (and their families) in Africa that do not have clean water to drink. The girls had been asking about the training and fundraising throughout the journey from July to November. The half marathon and the state conference were scheduled for the same weekend, so Mrs. Walton stayed in the same hotel as the Sunshine girls.

Friday evening, after shopping near Indy, the girls met with Mrs. Walton in the hotel the night before the Indy Monumental Half Marathon. They asked about the training and fundraising. They found out that Mrs. Walton was $100 short of her fundraising goal. When the girls met again later for prayer and to wrap up the evening, they presented Mrs. Walton with $100 to complete her fundraising goal. They had collected this money from their personal shopping money. This gift of the heart was such a blessing to Mrs. Walton and the families that it will benefit in Africa. Mrs. Walton appreciated their willingness to share of their money and the encouragement that the girls provided.
