MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR
DECEM
BER 2nd, 2022

Good morning, Grizzlies! Today is December 2nd and it is an “A” day.

Today is international day for the abolition of slavery. When we talk about slavery you might think about it as a thing of the past, but slavery happens all around the world, past and present. forced labor can happen anywhere and can take shape in many different forms. On international day for the abolition of slavery, we draw our attention to all those suffering in the present and remember all of those who have suffered in the past.

Last night the Boys Basketball teams had a good night, winning two hard fought victories! The boys B team won their game 39-24 & the boys A team won 55-44! Both teams played great team defense & had great situational offense. The B team was lead in scoring by Sam Koffenberger while the A team was led by Keenan Poulsen. The Grizzlies will be in action at Antioch Middle School next Tuesday. Congratulations Grizzlies on a great start to the season!

The Lady Grizzlies A and B lost last night to South Valley. The girls are showing a lot of improvement and coaches are proud of the effort and hustle the girls are showing. We play next Tuesday at home against Antioch. We appreciate all the support and hope to see everyone there.

BACKPACKS FOR HUNGER

We are excited to announce that our students can participate in the “Backpacks for Hunger” program at Paul Kinder Middle School.

This is an exciting partnership with Church of the Resurrection/Blue Springs to provide nutritious, kid-friendly snacks every weekend during the school year for families in need.

It is our hope that providing nutritious food over the weekend will benefit your child in areas of self-esteem, concentration, attendance, and academic performance. We kicked off the “Backpacks for Hunger” program on Friday, October 7th.

Students in this program receive a grocery sack full of non-perishable snacks to take home for the weekend. The grocery sack will be placed in their lockers on Fridays.

If you are interested in receiving more information about this program, please email your student’s counselor.
