November 7-12, 2022 Marysville Jr/Sr High School
Thank You For Your Service!
What an important week at MJSHS and for our country this week. First, our Kay club is sponsoring a blood drive Tuesday in our junior high gym. The blood shortage has gone on for a year now and Kansas is at a critical stage. Please consider giving this important gift of life! Second, Tuesday is also election day. The right to vote is one of our most important American duties as our students learned at our "civic engagement" day a couple weeks ago. Please show your patriotism by heading to the polls tomorrow to do your part. Finally, Friday our student council is sponsoring our annual Veterans Day program at MJSHS. We invite all veterans to attend the 9:00 a.m. ceremony celebrating their service and sacrifice to make our country the greatest in the world.

Teacher of the Week: Mr. Derek Pretre
Bulldogs of the Week in High School: Dasha Mick & Chandler Finke
Dasha was the only junior who volunteered to come back and write extra invitations for our Veterans Day program. She single handedly finished the list on her own. Most students wrote one letter but she probably wrote 15! Nice job, Dasha!
Chandler spilled his drink in the hallway when no one was looking and chose to go and find supplies to clean it up when he could have just kept walking. When told thank you, he said that is what we should all do. Great job, Chandler!
Bulldog of the Week in Junior High: Reece Wassenberg
Reece works hard, asks good questions, and pushes herself to do her best. She is friendly, upbeat, and has a quick wit. She participates in all class activities to the fullest extent and is a strong role model for her peers. Way to go, Reece!
Bulldog of the Week Winners
Don't forget that High School Bulldogs of the Week get to park at the start of the bus lane on Walnut Street. Or they can have a movie pass to the Astro 3 Theater! Our Junior High Bulldog automatically gets a movie pass to Astro 3!
Junior High Girls Basketball Hooping It Up!
Red Ribbon week was October 24 - 28. The theme for 2022 National Red Ribbon Week was, Celebrate Life. Live Drug Free. We had a speaker talk to our students about choices that he made in his life that had a negative impact on not only his life but others around him. His message was to not drink and drive because the outcome can have devastating consequences. We heard additional information from outside resources such as our Marysville Police Department and Juvenile Intensive Supervision Officer. Throughout the week we announced statistics relating to drugs and alcohol use. We wrapped up our week with a red ribbon search throughout the school.
