Good Morning, Grizzlies—

Intramural basketball starts February 3rd and runs through February 21st. 6th grade students will play for the first seven days. 7th and 8th grade students will play for the last seven days. Pick up a permission slip from your homeroom teacher for further explanation. Return forms to Mr. York or Mr. Morrow.

Art Club applications are due to Mrs. Heide on Friday!

The Book Exchange has been rescheduled for Thursday, January 30th, during advisory. Bring a favorite book, in good condition, and exchange it for someone else’s favorite. Don’t have a book you’re willing to give up? No problem, Ms. Jones has extra books for you. Sign up in the library.

Chess Club is starting again for 2nd semester. It will begin on THURSDAY, January 30th, until 4 p.m. Everyone needs a new permission slip, which can be found in the front office, outside Travalent’s room (812), or outside the concession stand.

Hey, Grizzlies! 2019-2020 yearbooks are for sale on line! Visit yearbookforever.com to pre-order yours! Yearbooks are $25.

Cooking Club will be selling muffins for two Grizzly Bucks tomorrow morning in each common area. You are allowed only ONE bag per person. Make sure to get there early, because they sell out fast!

Once again, GTV is looking for students who want to give a “Grizzly Shout Out,” or participate in a GTV studio challenge on the February 3rd episode. You can purchase a raffle ticket from Mrs. O in room #504, or when GTV members visit your Advisory classes on Thursdays. Tickets are $1 for “Grizzly Shouts” and $2 for the studio challenge. Your chances of being chosen are VERY HIGH, plus all money earned will go toward our PKMS Adopt-a-Family next holiday season! Have some fun for a great cause!

The Chiefs are going to the Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years, and we need to celebrate! Student Council is sponsoring a spirit week next week to lead up to the big game.

Here are the themes for each day:

Monday: Jersey Day – Wear your favorite jersey

Tuesday: I’m Dreaming of a Chiefs Win – PJ day

Wednesday: Welcome to Miami – Wear tourist gear/”Miami” outfit

Thursday: We Love the Chiefs From Our Heads to Our Toes – Wear Chiefs hat and/or socks

Friday: Red Friday – Go, Chiefs!

We will also have a BYOD day on Friday for just $3, and the proceeds will be donated to the charity Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt supports, TeamSmile, in honor of his being this year’s Chiefs player to be nominated for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. Let’s have some fun and Go, Chiefs!

And finally, to continue the celebration of the Chiefs and their road to the Super Bowl, Student Council is sponsoring an advisory door decorating contest! Brainstorm great and original ideas to make your class’s door rise above the rest, and earn the championship prize! All doors must be decorated by the end of advisory NEXT WEDNESDAY, so you don’t want to punt on this one! Aim for the end zone, get those creative juices flowing, and get started today!
