TUESDAY, 1/24: The 7th and 8th grade boys basketball teams both came away with victories over Carson City last night.  The 7th grade team had a nice comeback in a 30-28 victory.  The 8th grade team won by a score of 35-34.  Parker Klopf led a balanced scoring attack with 9 points.  Brayden Wright had 7 points, while Cael Waterman and Asher Hess each chipped in 6 points.  Both teams next play tomorrow night at home vs. Vestaburg with the 8th grade game starting at 5:00 Pm.

The Coleman Co-op wrestling team closed up JPC dual meets last week with a win over Farwell 72-12 and a loss to Clare 37-36.

The senior class is at 53% FAFSA completion. Congratulations to Abigail Yancer who won the drawing for 2 Free Prom tickets! Seniors - keep filing your FAFSA for the chance to win the last drawing prize (a Keurig, and coffee pod holder).

The B/C Coop defeated Fulton 66-12, St Charles 66-6, Bridgeport 66-6, Carson City 69-12 and Leslie 45-27. Going undefeated and 5-0 on the day was Dakota Lattimer while Isaiah Biers and Cole Aultman both won matches. 

Despite the girl's bowling team’s best efforts, they lost the double header against Breckenridge.  However, Ash Husted rolled a new personal high with a score of 100, Charisma Gingerich rolled a personal high of 101 and then a few games later rolled a 102, while Sophia Evans rolled the team's highest game of the day with a new personal high of 152. The boys continue to struggle to field a full team. Dawson Haller had a high game of 194 and Jacob Butters tied his personal high AGAIN at 161 (already rolled twice earlier this year).

Student Expectations

Attention Students:  All backpacks must be kept in your lockers, and your lockers must be closed.  No backpacks are allowed in the classroom.  If you cannot fit your items in your locker, please put it in the black bin in the office.

Students: You may not be in the library area without supervision at any time during the day.  It is a learning environment, not a social space except when changing classes.

Also, students, after Christmas break, you will not be allowed to just go to your car randomly throughout the day or at lunch. If there is an emergency and you need something from your car, you must have permission from Mrs. Hess, Mrs. Larsen, Coach Klopf, or Deputy Hodges.

Flu and cold season is here. Keeping your hands clean is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water. The CDC recommends scrubbing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. 

Please respect our new hat privilege.  Do not touch other students’ hats.  Keep yours on your head.  Do not share hats.  We don’t want to lose this privilege.

We are a closed campus school.  That means no student is to leave during the day without parent excusal/sign-out.  Also, no students are allowed to leave or be in the parking lot during lunch.

Please keep your space clean:  pick up your garbage and throw it away, do not draw on anything other than paper, keep your belongings in your locker.

Students coming from CTE, Ag & Culinary MUST wait in the cafeteria before 3rd hour.

Students are not allowed to walk on the service drive behind the buildings after school lets out, as buses and traffic are trying to flow through there. Students are asked to walk on the sidewalks for the driver and students' safety.

Please do not spray cologne, perfume, body spray, or deodorant in the hallways.  There are many people allergic to strong smells, and it can cause problems. Take care of these things at home or in the locker room after gym class.

The student section is for the purpose of cheering in support of and for our team, not against the visiting team.
