  • Hoops for Heart Facts of the Day:

    • You probably guessed that the blood just doesn't slosh around your body once it leaves the heart. It moves through many tubes called arteries and veins, which together are called blood vessels.

    • The movement of the blood through the heart and around the body is called circulation, and your heart is really good at it — it takes less than 60 seconds to pump blood to every cell in your body.


  • Attention 8th graders:  If you are interested in trying out for the American High School Cheer team please look for the cheerleaders during lunch today.  They will be here passing out Tryout Packets and answering questions.


  • GLI meeting in room 11 at lunch on Wednesday


  • Important announcement!  Anime-Club has noticed the decrease of members coming. We are going to do an attendance recheck to see how many people are coming to club.  If you don’t show up your permission slip will be discontinued to join club. Come to room 34 today at lunch.


  • Congrats to the winning Roller Coaster Engineering Club winners for the Thornton round of judging!  There were many ups and downs to this project, hardy har har. Our four winning groups are the Jurassic World, the Disney Coaster, the Circus Coaster, and the King Kong City.  The runner's up groups are Nightmare and Lost Jungle.
