Penny Wars for the Scott County Clearinghouse
SMS Penny Wars are coming up! On the 19th, 20th, and 21st, Builder’s Club and Student Council are collaborating on a group project to raise money for the Scott County Clearinghouse. Here's how it works:
- Buckets, labeled by Connect, will be set up in the main hall each morning.
- Students and staff can donate coins or bills into buckets.
- Coins will add to a group total, but bills will take away. You'll want to fuel your own bucket with some coins but you can also strategically place bills in other buckets!
- The Connect with the most money (coin total minus bill total) will be announced on Friday and the group will get a pizza party, sponsored by the Scott County Kiwanis Club.
Geography Bee Champ!
Congratulations to Ryan Self, winner of the SMS Geography Bee last week. Self outwitted and outlasted six other strong finalists in Chloe Helton, Sam Carr, Matthew Jourden, Carson Cox, Gavin Borden, Treyton Owens, Jake Little, and Caleb Turner. Congrats also to runner up Borden and 3rd place winner Cox. Self will now compete to qualify for the state competition by taking a rigorous online exam. Good luck, Ryan! Thanks to Mr. Hicks, Mr. Roberts, Mr. Craig, Mrs. Copple, and Mr. Bracey for organizing and running the competition!
These are the days at the end of our spring break. The next three snow days (if needed) will also be during the second week of break. Let's say no to snow!
