On October 11th & 14th, the Boone Papa Murphy's will be teaming up with Mount Olive Lodge to raise funds for the Books for Bikes program. 10% of all purchases from 4-7 p.m. will go to support Books for Bikes. We encourage everyone to grab a pizza and support a great program for our kids. Bonus - you won't have to cook dinner that night!

Short Story Collaboration Project
BHS Juniors and 1st Graders came together for a short story collaboration project. First grade students each drew a picture of a character. They then gave it a name and what it liked to do. The junior teachers then put them on the board and each group of juniors got to have a "draft" to pick their pictures. They each chose 3-4 pictures and those became the characters for their children's book they would write. The juniors wrote a story that incorporated the elements they discussed in class. They added the first grader's pictures into the electronic book and then recorded a read aloud for anyone to read the book.

YSS Mentoring Program - Update and Volunteer Opportunity!
The YSS Mentoring Program is looking forward to a return to in-person mentoring for the 2021-2022 school year! The program matches students in grades K-8th with a trained volunteer mentor once per week during the school day. These weekly meetings provide a positive, caring role model to eat lunch with, play games and simply talk about the student's interests and ideas.
Information and volunteer applications can be found at https://www.yss.org/program/mentoring.To learn how your child can become a participant, contact Tracy at email@example.com or Heidi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Free School Breakfast and Lunch for all Students for the 2021-2022 school year
Tasty Toreador Meals - Supply Chain Issues
• This school year, thanks to federal pandemic waivers, all students will be eligible for free meals, regardless of family income.
• School meal programs nationwide are experiencing many of the same supply chain issues that have impacted restaurants and grocery stores throughout the pandemic.
• Our school nutrition team is committed to ensuring students continue to have access to healthy meals each school day.
• Just as families have to make substitutions on grocery lists, schools will have to make some last-minute changes to our regular menus, based on availability.
• We hope parents and students will be patient as we sort through these supply chain issues.
• We may not have the same menu choices that we typically offer our students, but we’ll be sure that all students are nourished and ready to learn.
*Reminder: For students bringing a sack lunch and wanting school milk, there will be a .50 cent charge per carton.

High School Activities
Our "Online Athletics Registration" is live and active for the 2021-22 School Year (link is below). Please take the time to read through the information, and fill out the forms for your student. All students involved in District-Sponsored Athletics in grades 7-12 will need a completed online athletics registration on file, along with a current physical form (physicals are valid for 13 months after the date of the physical). There is a place within the registration to upload the completed physical form.
Completion of the Registration/Physical is not required for the attendance at any summer camps that may be offered. However, the Athletics Registration and Physical Form must be completed and on file before a student may physically participate in practice this Fall. For High School, this starting date is Monday August 9th. Middle School practices will begin a couple weeks later near the first day of school.

If you are in need of a specific Sports Physical, Boone Family Chiropractic is willing to assist, and they are planning to take $10.00 from every paid physical and donate that to the Boone Booster Club. Thank you to Dr. Zach Weisbrod and his staff for their support!
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns in this process.
Take care, and Roll 'Dors!
