  • A message from Out of the Blue Magazine: 

Kevin - Once upon a time, there was a man who was allergic to himself. Everywhere he went he would cough and sneeze and rub his eyes. But one day, his friend… 

Sam - Hey, that sounds like a good story. Why don’t you submit that to the literary magazine?

Kevin - No. Anyway, his friend, who’s name was Max, said…

Sam - So WHY don’t you want to submit that to the magazine?

Kevin - Cause I said so. Max said, why don’t you wear this…

Sam - That’s kind of stupid, right? If you submitted your story to the literary magazine, hundreds of people would read it, and he would get credit for it.

Kevin - Out of the Blue needs lots of types of creative work. Some of these are stories, poetry, artwork, photographs, music, and comics.

Sam - Out of the Blue is run in room 312 by Mrs. Olsen, the English teacher on the Garnet team. Contact her for further information.

  • The Outdoor Education snow tubing trip at Powder Ridge that was scheduled for today has been rescheduled to Thursday, February 7th due to the weather forecast.  If you signed up already, please see Mr. Wilkinson or Ms. Nelson to get a waiver.  The waiver must be completed and turned in for you to go snow tubing next week.  Forms are also still available for rock climbing or ice skating, so sign up before they fill up too!  
  • Reminder: MathCounts will not have a regular meeting tomorrow.  Only those 8 students going to the competition on Saturday will meet at 7:15 in Mrs. Goldman's room, room 354.  Again, there will be no regular MathCounts meeting tomorrow morning.  We will meet next Friday.
